Making the Most of Diversity: Conditions for Living Together (differently)
AbstractThe ever growing flows of people, goods, images and ideas at global level are changing the way we see and experience diversity. Diversity can be an advantage, for companies, cities, and countries, but it demands re-defining policies and institutions. In this process, cultures should not be taken as pre-given, fixed and monolithic entities. Rather, we should acknowledge that individuals are bundles of orientations that evolve dynamically within social, political and economic processes and contexts. Acknowledging this principle implies re-thinking the form and structures of the polity as well as the way we approach and build social relations on the ground.
