The intensification of global flows in the current period has led scholars to describe cities like London as 'super-diverse': a 'diversification of diversity', with a population characterised by multiple ethnicities, countries of origin, immigration statuses, and age profiles.

The aims of this conference are: to address the missing dimension of migration and mobility in the literature on urban space, and the missing dimension of spatiality in the literature on diversity; and to develop new modes of inquiry appropriate to the contemporary challenge of super-diversity.
