Description

In a world of increasing mobility, how people of different cultures live together is a key issue of our age, especially for those responsible for planning and running cities.

New thinking is needed on how diverse communities can cooperate in productive harmony instead of leading parallel or antagonistic lives.

Policy is often dominated by mitigating the perceived negative effects of diversity, and little thought is given to how adiversity dividend or increased innovative capacity might be achieved. The Intercultural City, based on numerous case studies worldwide, analyses the links between urban change and cultural diversity.

It draws on original research in the US, Europe, Australasia and the UK.

It critiques past and current policy and introduces new conceptual frameworks.

It provides significant and practical advice for readers, with new insights and tools for practitioners such as theintercultural lensindicators of opennessurban cultural literacy andten steps to an Intercultural City. Published with Comedia.
