Multiculturalism is often blamed for preaching cultural relativism, in that it provides the foundation that all cultures are to be treated as equal. This issue has been considered by Wikan (2002), when she examines a number of case studies describing forced marriages of young Norwegian citizens. The young women in these cases who have fled their parental home have been returned against their will to their families by social services. Her argument is that cultural rights of the group override the individual rights of the young people and that social services are implicated in this state of affairs (Wikan 2002, 145-6).
