Today, cities and nations around the world struggle with an increased cultural and ethnic diversity. Inter- and intra-national migration and market globalization, at a speed and volume which has never been seen before result in a changing dynamics of the social, political, and economic structures in urban societies. The increasing diversity within cities challenges the hierarchies of power, disrupts the status quo and poses questions to ideological constructions of identity and citizenship. It forces the redefinition of the concepts of belonging, inclusion and citizenship. Urban planners today, as well as politicians, government officials, and everyday citizens, must find ways to accommodate changing demographics and corresponding social, political and economic conditions both spatially and systemically. This has to be done in order to create practices and policies that work towards ensuring justice and equality in society.
