In recent times, diversity has increasingly become a subject of jurisprudence, especially with regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, age and disability. Another central topic of the current discussion is cultural diversity. Particularly in the period from the beginning of the 19th century, however, diversity appears in another form, namely as a concomitant of functional differentiation, leading to a variety of forms of the organisation of particular interests. The conference will examine and discuss approaches for a broader understanding of diversity as well as assess the potential consequences for the law.
