Abstract and Keywords
This article examines the contemporary debate concerning the issues of equality and difference. It suggests that equality now appears, in both policy and theory debates, to require a respect for difference rather than a search for similarities. It argues that equality is increasingly theorized as an issue of maldistribution, oppression, and domination. It explains that while liberal egalitarianism focuses primarily on maldistribution, and a politics of recognition addresses cultural oppression, theories of democratic inclusion engage with the need to eradicate domination.
