Diversities, space and migrations in the entrepreneurial city

This project aims at analysing how diversity, of a cosmopolitan type, or superdiversity, has been requested by political decision makers and part of urban planning and what factors and dynamics contribute to this configuration. Research that will be supported by a qualitative approach will focus on the mechanisms and strategies for accommodating cultural diversity in the local space, exploring both the everyday experiences and cultural encounters and the strategic and deliberative aspects of local governance networks. We ask how cultural diversity is incorporated in processes of urban renewal, in the creation of images of the city, in gentrification dynamics, paying particular attention to the subjects and strategies of local governance.
