AbstractLiberal polities are as committed to ending segregation and isolation in principle as they are engaged in maintaining them in practice. That contradiction is partly explained by the perennial gap between ideals and practices; this symposium focuses on strategies for closing that gap. But the contradiction between ideal and practice also rests on a deeper base. Understood through a particular lens, liberal ideals permit, and in some circumstances encourage, group isolation and separation. Some public policies reflect that understanding of liberalism, and need to be taken into account as we seek to end impermissible segregation and isolation.
