Cultural diversity is an undeniable social reality in most societies all over the world. In western countries, this is evident in the population composition that reflects a cultural diversity resulting from forcible occupation of territories and the subordination or incorporation of native ethnic and linguistic communities, the arrival of immigrants, as well as the emergence of sub-cultures within the majority. Although such diversity has been a feature of almost all societies throughout history, it is more defiant today than before. Cultural difference has taken various forms, and has given rise to diverse problems in the public domain of life. Consequently, political philosophy as a conceptual as well as a normative study of politics faces a theoretical challenge. Western political thought and, in particular, liberalism have responded to the issue of cultural diversity in a variety of ways.
