Following four years of extensive research, the DIVERCITIES: Governing Urban Diversity conference aims to relate the findings from the project to existing knowledge and practice; this implies not only formal (scientific) presentations but also a dedicated effort to create real workshops for policy-makers and practitioners, who will be in dialogue with the researchers involved in the project.
It is our intention to organise a dynamic conference with scientific presentations and papers by researchers alongside a wide spectrum of stakeholders including leaders of projects in different cities comprising school teachers, neighbourhood workers, community planners, etc. The aim is to organise an international public event where the positive elements of urban diversity will be presented via a multidisciplinary programme of science, art, music, theatre and film. Keep up to date with developments on the DIVERCITIES: Governing Urban Diversity page and on the blog.
