Multiculturalism in Asia - Peace and Harmony

The globalising age accompanied by the challenge of multiculturalism is an age of crisis of identity which is posing the challenge of accepting global diversity, it also raises critical questions concerning what is primary identity and what is the link between religious, national and regional identity. Increasing incidences of xenophobia, ethnoreligious exclusivism, conflicts and wars pose a tremendous challenge for building of a new multicultural world. This development is placing constraints on basic human freedoms which can be subjected to abuse for non-peaceful purposes.

In this collection of articles, prominent statespersons and academics address on the need for initiating strategic planning to build and foster multiculturalism in contemporary Asia.
