DIVERCITIES: Dealing with Urban Diversity
This book is one of the outcomes of the DIVERCITIES project. It focuses on the question of
how to create social cohesion, social mobility and economic performance in today’s hyperdiversified
cities. The project’s central hypothesis is that urban diversity is an asset; it can inspire
creativity and innovation and make cities more liveable and harmonious. To ensure a more
intelligent use of the potentials of diversity, a re-thinking of public policies and governance
models is needed.
