Inhoud vakDiversity has become a buzz word lately. It is often considered to be a
core characteristic of modern society, and a direct consequence of
globalization, mobility and the growth of urban landscapes. Diversity,
be it cultural, ethnic, social or political, has been depicted as the
key fundamental societal condition. In 2007 Vertovec published ‘Super

its complexity given the fact that diversity is at once an analytical
concept, a preferred characteristic of society, and a practice.
