9781442616158: Cities and the Politics of Difference: Multiculturalism and Diversity in Urban Planning

Demographic change and a growing sensitivity to the diversity of urban communities have increasingly led planners to recognize the necessity of planning for diversity. Edited by Michael A. Burayidi, Cities and the Politics of Difference offers a guide for making diversity a cornerstone of planning practice.

The essays in this collection cover the practical and theoretical issues that surround this transformation, discussing ways of planning for inclusive and multicultural cities, enhancing the cultural competence of planners, and expanding the boundaries of planning for multiculturalism to include dimensions of diversity other than ethnicity and religion – including sexual and gender minorities and Indigenous communities. The advice of the contributors on how planners should integrate considerations of diversity in all its forms and guises into practice and theory will be valuable to scholars and practitioners at all levels of government.

About the Author:

Michael A. Burayidi is Irving Distinguished Professor and Chair of the Department of Urban Planning at Ball State University.

Review:

“Creating and maintaining diversity is perhaps the greatest challenge currently facing planners. Cities and the Politics of Difference explores in depth the theoretical and practical issues involved in planning for a mix of gender, ethnic, racial, and income groups in the contemporary metropolis. It is essential reading for planners and students of urban politics.”

(Susan S. Fainstein, Department of Urban Planning and Design, Harvard University, and author of 'The Just City')

Cities and the Politics of Difference is a welcome addition to a burgeoning field in urbanism and urban planning. Balancing theoretical, reflective chapters with others that focus on skills development, this collection introduces readers to the complex nature of diversity, argues for the need to acknowledge and plan for it, and demonstrates how planners and policy-makers can address diversity in urban planning practice.”

(Mark Seasons, School of Planning, University of Waterloo)
