This paper analyses how urban governance incorporated migration-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 development and market creation that incorporate cultural diversity from a de-ethnicised perspective.
