Diversity and unity are frequently assumed to be mutually exclusive concepts. The question of how to simultaneously govern diverse populations and ensure stability has been at the core of political thought from ancient times to the present. This workshop will focus on how contemporary societies and governments respond to diversity and majority-minority relations.
