Description :
This article proposes a conceptual framework for understanding the function and foundations of urban tolerance. It analyses the strategies that endeavour to impose a mode of social interaction, which treat difference as illegitimate and understand tolerance as static, run the risk of perpetuating a cycle of intolerance. It demonstrates that the existence of a shared language of social interaction and the recognition of the legitimacy of difference are defined as the interrelated foundations of tolerance. It concludes that strategies which accommodate tolerance can unlock the potential of the citizenry to encounter and engage with difference.
