Abstract

Among liberal multiculturalists, there is a relative consensus about cultural membership as the relevant criterion for distributing cultural policies. This article argues that membership in a cultural group cannot be defined in terms of the sharing of cultural content, but that politically relevant membership is better understood by the recognition of the larger political community. Due to the discrepancies in recognition, as well as reasons for recognition, cultural policies should not be distributed along the lines of membership in a cultural group. This has to do with the discrepancy between cultural policies as advancing certain conceptions of cultural content, and the aim of these policies as accommodating people's cultural differences.
