Cities remain at the centre of global migration flows and challenges of diversity – as the principal destination for migrant settlement, as the localised site for national anxieties, as the space where human mobilities, rights and citizenship are facilitated or constrained, and as the everyday mediating ground for both racial and ethnic tensions and cosmopolitan futures.
This symposium invites academics, government and NGOs, community practitioners and industry, to network and come together for collaborative discussion on how we can build more inclusive cities.
