Difference-blind liberalism implies that justice is a matter of treating everyone equally, regardless of their cultural identity. But the rule and exemption approach involves treating members of cultural minorities differently. Hence, a difference-blind liberal will object that the rule and exemption approach is unjust.
The arts Past and Present Book 3 Cultural Encounters p. 106
Over the course of history, the movement of individuals and populations has been a common occurrence. There are instances were these movements were voluntary. In other instances, they were caused by necessity, due to economic hardship and/or wars. The issue of immigrants and refugees in today’s world is central and is a heated one. Societies, western and non-western alike, seem divided over the issue. In the Western world, where most refugees seem to gravitate, the issue of refugees and migrants is often treated from the liberalism lens as these countries are professedly Lockean (after John Locke) in outlook. How does liberalism approach the issue of refugees/migrants and their reception/integration?
