Reasonable Accomodation

Reasonable Accomodation

Managing Religious Diversity

eBook - 2012
Rate this:

Often when a religious minority challenges mainstream customs, the phrase "reasonable accommodation" is at the centre of the ensuing debate. But does reasonable accommodation achieve its goal of integrating the rights of religious minorities with those of mainstream society, or does it really emphasize inequality? Reasonable Accommodation seeks to define the meaning of this phrase and to provide a much-needed critical assessment of its use within Canada and abroad. Woven throughout is commentary about whether there really is a religious majority in Canada, how the idea of "shared values" obscures debate, and how tolerating religious differences simply isn't enough to guarantee equality.
