What place, if any, ought cultural considerations have when we blame and punish in the criminal law? In general, to hold someone criminally responsible is to hold them blameworthy and deserving of their punishment. Background cultural factors seem to threaten this: for example, a person may be ignorant of the way things are done "around here "; or may understand those things differently; or may believe that his or her culture demands certain (illegal) actions.
According to some scholars who propose a "cultural defence ", taking such cultural evidence into account is necessary if the practice of punishing individuals is to be legitimate. Bringing together
political and legal theorists, the essays in this volume offer original and diverse discussions of these issues that go to the heart of both legal and political debates about multiculturalism and debates about human agency and responsibility.
