Liberal neutrality is the idea that the liberal state should not promote any particular 'conception of the good'. This idea formed a cornerstone of John Rawls' work and has been developed by many other liberal thinkers including Brian Barry, Robert Nozick, Ronald Dworkin.

Liberal neutrality provides the basis for some critiques of multiculturalism and the idea of group rights.
