To recognize and respect cultural and ethnical differences and, at the
same time, guarantee the equality of treatment, seems like a paradox.
However, it is among the crucial challenges that plural democracies are
faced with nowadays. It results in multiple problems, such as the struggle
for recognition of cultural minorities or the actualization of universal
human rights.

The contributors of this anthology will discuss these issues. As the
editors of this anthology, our goal was to combine knowledge and opinions
from both various disciplines and multiple cultures to unfold the
complexity and variety of questions that have to be solved if we do see
public space also as a place of intercultural recognition.
