-driven superdiversity combining cultural and economic development policies. We use the case of Mouraria, a Lisbon neighbourhood, as a site where city strategies accommodate old and new diversities to render a cosmopolitan sense associated to a ‘diversity advantage’ approach. We identify three strategies shaping urban governance: de-ethnicisation of superdiversity and urban growth policies, diversity aestheticisation and the rationale of encounter, and place marketing and city branding. We find that urban governance in a superdiverse neighbourhood relies on policies of economic
Immigration has transformed the social, economic, political and cultural landscapes of global cities such as London, Melbourne, Milan and Amsterdam. The term ‘superdiversity’ captures a new era of migration-driven demographic diversifications and associated complexities. Superdiversity is the future or, in many cases, the current reality of neighbourhoods, cities, countries and regions, yet the implications of superdiversification for governance and policy have, until now, received very little attention.
First published as a special issue of Policy & Politics, this insightful volume brings together contributions from experts across Europe to explore the ways in which superdiversity has shaped the development of policy and to consider challenges for the future.
Policy Analysis in the Czech Republic is a vital addition to the International Library of Policy Analysis series. It is not only the first comprehensive overview of the historical development and current state of policy analysis in the Czech Republic, but also in the post-communist Central and Eastern European region. As such, it provides a unique picture of policy analysis that in many respects profoundly differs from 'Western' policy analysis textbooks. Written by leading experts in the field – including practitioners – it outlines the historical development of policy analysis, identifies its role in academic education and research, and examines its varying styles and methods. This unique book offers indispensable reading for researchers, policy makers and students.
, 2008, 12). 147 Integrating superdiversity in urban governance This chapter tries to understand how such linkages have come about in Lisbon, highlighting three urban strategies: de-ethnicisation of superdiversity and urban growth policies, aestheticisation of diversity and the rationale of the encounter, and place marketing and city branding. We use Mouraria in inner-city Lisbon as case study where one can grasp these three strategies working together to render a new model of city governance where the incorporation of migration-driven cultural dimensions
argue for a primary focus on vulnerable, excluded and marginalised people, not on the Roma people. There has always been tension on the organisational, academic and even governmental level over the ethnicisation and de-ethnicisation of the social exclusion problem that, as Synková (2011, p 74) pointed out, ‘obviously discloses much deeper issues concerning power struggles between different camps, and questions of access and control’. However, the ‘ethnic-blind’ discourse arguing for not using the ethnic label to avoid stereotypes and not to obscure the social
