In a world of increasing mobility, how people of different cultures live together is a key issue of our age, especially for those responsible for planning and running cities. New thinking is needed on how diverse communities can cooperate in productive harmony instead of leading parallel or antagonistic lives. Policy is often dominated by mitigating the perceived negative effects of diversity, and little thought is given to how a diversity dividend or increased innovative capacity might be achieved. The Intercultural City, based on numerous case studies worldwide, analyses the links between urban change and cultural diversity. It draws on original research in the US, Europe, Australasia and the UK. It critiques past and current policy and introduces new conceptual frameworks. It provides significant and practical advice for readers, with new insights and tools for practitioners such as the intercultural lens, indicators of openness, urban cultural literacy and ten steps to an Intercultural City. Published with Comedia.

Recensione:

'This book reminds us - with both proof and passion - that there can be no truly creative or competitive cities without first having curiosity, compassion, conviviality and cooperation.' Richard Florida, author of The Rise of the Creative Class 'A much-needed addition to the literature.' Kathy Pain, director of Globalization and World Cities Spatial Planning Unit, Loughborough University 'Wood and Landry have emerged as the leading exponents in the UK of the path from multiculturalism to interculturalism... Their refreshingly grounded approach builds on actual examples and provides inspiring stories of the social and economic benefits of embracing diversity. A must-read for those involved in city building, community development and place making.' Leonie Sandercock, professor in urban planning and social policy, University of British Columbia 'This is a highly topical area and with increasing concern about ghettos in our cities this would provide useful material.' Clive Harridge, President of RTPI 'This book is a fantastic achievement ... a valuable, and highly useful study.' Macroscopio 'This book is a fantastic achievement by the authors. It offers a concise overview of extant literature and policies, as well as hands-on recommendations for local administration. A must-read study.' Orhan Kaya, alderman for participation and culture, Rotterdam, The Netherlands 'This book is a welcome celebration of urban cultural diversity that lays out new concepts and policies to enhance recognition across the social and cultural divide, but without ducking the very real challenges.' Professor Ash Amin, Department of Geography, Durham University 'This book is an important addition to the existing literature and a valuable resource for all the professionals in the built environment.' Institution of Civil Engineers
