Multiculturalism evolved in liberal democracies as a policy response to a new politics of recognition arising from increasing migration, and racial, ethnic, linguistic and religious diversity within nation states. The foundational principle of multiculturalism is civil and political liberty for all members of a society, regardless of race, ethnicity, culture or religion. This includes: freedom of speech, conscience and assembly; the right to mutual respect and political participation; and equality of opportunity, particularly the right to education and training, and employment.
