POLICY BRIEF NO.7
City policy agendas are much more geared to the assets of diversity than national agendas. Careful city planning can link diversity policies to spatial interventions and stimulates the inclusion of new groups, such as refugees. A hopeful sign for cities is that younger generations are more at ease with diversity than older ones and tend to focus more on what unites us than what separates us. This policy brief, therefore, calls for a positive approach to diversity and presents cities as spaces of hope.
POLICY BRIEF NO. 3
This policy brief focuses on local governance arrangements and initiatives that utilise diversity in a positive way to improve the social and economic conditions for neighbourhood residents. It calls for an increase in sustainable and flexible support for bottom-up arrangements that fill the gap between official urban policies and the needs of the population.
