The purpose of this section is to show which elements of Tully’s work are drawn upon to make my argument in favour of group integration. What kind of principles ought we to use to govern inter- and intragroup interactions? Tully uses the game metaphor to describe the kinds of interactions that we ought to have between free, participatory citizens. One could say that the rules that govern institutions, such as parliaments, courts, property, contracts, and so on, are each specific games with their own frameworks.

A lot of the problems cited by Young have to do with how cultural groups understand each other and expectations held by the mainstream about the places that some groups should have in society. It follows that a large part of the problem with liberal multiculturalism is that the theory does not sufficiently recognise the normative value in inter-group communication. This form of communication, favoured by group integration through fostering the institutional growth of groups, enables groups to be participatory members in their host society, which would otherwise have considerable difficulty understanding the plethora of world outlooks held by their minority cultures.

Be it due to political action that happens between people, or due to linguistic innovations that have unpredictable consequences, our foundational normative principles will always undergo a certain degree of flux.

It’s very hard for groups to express their claims without recourse to the language of the majority (Tully, 1995: 39). To address this problem, liberal multiculturalists ought to take up the first of the two parts of Tully’s solution: that of recognising the importance that agonism takes place as a vehicle for inter- and intra-group deliberations.
