Urban planning and the challenge of super-diversity
Little attention to date has focused on the role of urban planning in responding to migration-related super-diversity. Through a focus on a city (Liverpool, UK) which is becoming increasingly super-diverse, the paper highlights the importance of class based differences – over and above ethnic and cultural differences – in shaping the practices of urban planners. Along with the recency and speed of population change, the importance of legal status and the ‘visibility’ of super-diversity, this may serve to increase the risk of urban planning equivalising differences between residents and concealing issues of racism and discrimination.
