Abstract: There exists no public policy in the world today that openly claims inspiration in a transculturalist approach. Instead, and following Canada's and then Australia's adoption of multiculturalist public policies during the 1970s, an increasing number of states have chosen multiculturalism, and in some cases, interculturalism, as an important policy frameworks for managing cultural diversity. Indeed, ethno-cultural pluralism is far from limited to only those societies that have been major destinations for international immigration. It is, rather, a defining feature and a growing reality for most of the world's societies. As abundantly documented by the Minority Rights Group, no nation state among the United Nations' (UN) a hundred and ninety three members is entirely monocultural, mono-ethnic or even unilingual.
