Multiculturalism and European Law


To speak of a “multicultural Europe” is to venture onto a semantically slippery terrain, since the concept of multiculturalism and that of Europe have no consensual definitions. Multiculturalism has fluid meanings and serves as a mold into which new models are poured. And we could say the same about “Europe,” another crucible word that everyone fills with meanings, fears, or hopes. Without neglecting these theoretical and ideological ambiguities, it is nevertheless important to hypothesize the advent of a European multiculturalism and to analyze the steps in this direction by examining existing European law.
