Bibliographical note

Ethnically Diverse City

European Cities will continue to be the destinations of migrants from all over the world seeking for refuge, education and work. In some cities, they are concentrating and developing their own life-world (“Lebenswelt”), in others they are integrated in the host society at a faster pace.

The training programme 2008 focused on three major issues:

Ethnic diversity and the requirements for urban policies

Integration of different ethnic groups in the local economy and society

Innovative strategies for mutual benefit within ethnic diverse neighbourhoods

Workshop and conference addressed the main topic of ethnic diversity such as the spatial expression of different religions and cultural traditions, etc. and the mechanisms of migrations (work, refuge chain migration, illegal entry, crime, prostitution).
