This paper explores the various meanings of multiculturalism, integration, assimilation, and the relationship between the right to equality and dignity for ethnic and religious minorities and the right to freedom of expression. There are difficult legal and ethical choices involved, especially when vulnerable minorities seek to curtail or limit the expression of opinions which they regard as insulting, abusive or offensive.Tara Lyle, Parliamentary Legal Officer of the Odysseus Trust, helped in preparing this paper.
