New Knowledge Highlights


A book discussing the theoretical advancements that the project has produced will appear shortly:


Jan Dobbernack and Tariq Modood (eds) Tolerance, Intolerance and Respect. Hard to Accept?, London: Palgrave (2013, in press)


For more information on the book please see here.



In Hard to Accept, leading political theorists and sociologists offer perspectives on intolerance, toleration and respect in contemporary Europe. Contributors examine the relevance of these concepts for how societies respond to new formations of ethnic and religious pluralism. They address challenges, such as anxieties about Muslim identity claims and the rise of a new ‘liberal intolerance’. At the same time, they explore the role that perspectives in political theory can play for resolving some of the challenges that appear to make it increasingly ‘hard to accept’.

Forthcoming in the Palgrave Politics of Identity and Citizenship book series.
