Genesis of multiculturalism: Will Kymlicka's study of multiculturalism
The concept of Multiculturalism has undergone drastic transformation since its genesis in 1971. This article describes how the notion of Multiculturalism has evolved from being 'assimilation' of ethnic minorities towards 'acceptance and integration of diverse cultures' and how it continues to be perceived differently by multiculturalists who remain divided on what constitutes the concept. The article majorly focuses on Will Kymlicka's Study of Multiculturalism who was the first to present a elaborated systematic theory of the concept and differentiated minority rights into three kinds. The article also analyses Bikhu Parekh 's theory of the concept which emphasises on equality and dignity to the members of cultural minorities.
