The article deals with the legal implications of multiculturalism, in the context of globalization and the “clash of civilizations”. From a Euro- pean-democratic perspective, we analyze several practical dilemmas – the con- sequence of a “collision” between diverse normative systems: their respective standards, views of morality, religion, costumes, among others. Confronting many different and, sometimes, competing values – inevitable in pluralistic societies – represents a huge challenge for government authorities and, particularly, lawmakers. The idea of multiculturalism which, until now, has been an inherent element of European legal systems, nowadays faces a serious crisis. In this context, there is an urgent need to implement appropriate policies and laws able to protect diverse cultural groups and to ensure efficient instru- ments, in order to eliminate the unwanted effects of multiculturalism, such as extremism and terrorism.
