What is superdiversity? 

Superdiversity is a term that acknowledges the increas- ing diversity of our urban environments. Within this  context, diversity encompasses not only ethnicity or country of origin, but also variation in immigration status, rights and entitlements, age, gender, sexuality, patterns of spatial distribution, networks and belief  systems.  

Why might I be interested in superdiversity? 

This complex diversity can present chal- lenges for services and researchers. The concept of superdiversity is useful whenever we encounter problems of the ‘one size fits all’ variety. If your research, or the services which support the people with whom you conduct your research, involves cultural  diversity and psychosocial complexity, then ‘IRiS’ might be a useful network for you.
