Question Description

  2. Provide one specific example of the kind of cultural accommodation that Charles Taylor and other proponents of multiculturalism support. The example you describe could be one that has come up in this course (e.g., in the readings) or one that you have identified on your own. Be as specific as possible in identifying the policy involved and who or what it is designed to preserve or promote.
