Introduction

The Cohesion and Belonging strand of the Action for Inclusion Initiative brought together COMPAS researchers with senior officials responsible for cohesion and integration in five different European cities to consider their responses around how Europe’s cities can manage diversity dynamics for urban liveability and urban sustainability under the force of massive economic, social, cultural and political change, and how we can learn to build inclusive cities and inclusive urban citizenship.

This report summarises the experience of working with senior staff as they developed their reforms, reflects on the experience of the process, summarises the main issues that arose from research scoping and practice, and then considers the extent to which, within this process, the cities were successful.
