Cities around the world are facing increasingly diverse populations as a result of migration, both from rural areas within their own national borders and from other countries. The resulting cultural differences can create problems and conflict. In Europe alone, the sheer scale of migration is forcing the issue to the top of the political agenda. Yet cities that are able to manage diversity successfully can benefit from the potential of migrants and minorities for entrepreneurship and innovation.
The Intercultural City brings together scholars from a range of disciplines, including urban studies, geography, planning, sociology, political science and spatial design. This is to explore both the failings of existing policies to manage diversity and to examine how one might begin to create appropriate governance structures to remove obstacles and enhance the integration of migrants and minorities. Combining fresh theoretical insights with studies from cities in Europe, North America, Asia, and Africa, The Intercultural City offers a timely and important contribution to the challenge of managing diversity in the city of the twenty-first century in a period when the issue of migration has been thrust to the forefront of international attention.
