Wide-reaching International Research
I was one of the founding members of the DIVERCITIES research network, member of the DIVERCITIES Scientific Steering Committee and lead reseachers for the Toronto case study.
Over the course of the project six International Consortium Meetings were held. Fourteen in-depth city books, seven policy briefs with recommendations and 12 newsletters and were published along with flyers and a litereature review. The concluding Governing Urban Diversity Conferences held in Rotterdam in February 2017 brought together the research with keynote addresses from leading researchers, interactive workshops, field trips and a Diversity Mini-Festival showcasing the talents from the Rotterdam research area. The final publication was the Handbook for Governing Hyper-diverse Cities, which I co-edited with my colleagues Gideon Bolt, Larissa Pluss and Walter Schenkel.
