On the political and democratic preconditions of equal recognition

Published in Critical Review of Social and Political Philosophy. 2017, vol. 20, no. 1, p. 88-100
Abstract Alan Patten’s Equal Recognition is a compelling justification of a liberal,procedural conception of recognition. This conception is built upon a convincing conception of moral equality, but it does not offer a full theoretical discussion of recognition. I argue that the liberal recognition provided by Patten is too formal and narrow to address all relevant issues regarding conflicts of recognition in democratic societies. In particular, it does not consider the political and democratic preconditions that should be granted to minority groups or immigrants in order to provide them fair opportunities to effectively (and not only formally) reach equal recognition.
