IRiS Key Concepts Roundtable on 'Planning for Superdiversity: opportunities and challenges?'
- Room 429 Muirhead Tower, University of Birmingham
- Lectures Talks and Workshops, Research, Social Sciences
The roundtable will bring together a small group of leading scholars in this field to start a conversation about the implications of, and interrelationships between, superdiversity and planning from a critical perspective.
It will address some of the following questions and issues: Has the way we think about urban planning changed with the emergence of superdiversity? How might a superdiversity lens help us to address urban planning issues in contemporary society? Are new forms of spatialisation and/or segregation emerging in the context of superdiversity? How can a planning perspective help us to understand superdiversity?
