Peter Kivisto’s definition of multiculturalism

by , under All categories, Enrique

Here is a definition by Peter Kivisto of multiculturalism as a social policy:

Multiculturalism refers to a view that ethnically or religiously diverse societies should protect and promote diversity and should be based on both individual and group rights.

As one may recall in an earlier post, Finland is not officially a multicultural nation such as Canada, Australia and England. There is no mention of the term “multicultural society” in our Constitution and Equality Act. However, Kivisto, states that Finland is a nation with multicultural susceptibilities.
