Rachel Humphris (IRiS Associate Researcher) reports on the second Key Concepts roundtable.

Professor Ben Rogaly, Dr Paul Watt and Professor Gill Crozier addressed whether, and in what ways, superdiversity might assist researchers in examining inequality.  Dr Nando Sigona opened the discussion by reviewing three dimensions through which the relationship between the two concepts might be examined. First, he proposed reflection on how patterns of inequality are shaping up in the 21st century, particularly in urban environments. Second, he suggested researchers examine to what extent patterns of diversification and patterns of inequality are related to each other. Finally, he introduced a third, and potentially more methodological question, regarding how the concept of superdiversity might act as an analytical lens to understand increasing inequalities.
