Diversity

Migration is one of the central drivers in increasing diversity in contemporary societies, especially in cities. “Super-diversity” – the multiplication of the axes of difference (not just by ethnicity, but also by country of origin, legal status, faith and so on) – is a defining feature of our time. The challenge of living with difference is therefore one of the key ethical and political challenges, and understanding how this works is a central question for scholars. There is increasing attention to everyday forms of conviviality emerging from this challenge – but also to the persistence of inequality, division and racism.
