  • You are able to communicate a thorough understanding of contemporary dilemmas regarding diversity, both orally and in writing.
Content
How to live with, and govern, diversity is one of today’s key concerns. Such questions are fueled by intensifying migration flows, growing ethnic and cultural diversity, and the upsurge of emancipation movements. They are articulated in heated debates about integration, multicultural society and national values, but also in contestations over class, gender, sexual, religious or racial discrimination. In such cases, diversity is intrinsically connected with inequality. In this course, we examine how diversity is imagined and experienced, what problems diversity is seen to raise and what solutions are proposed, whether by ordinary citizens or institutional actors. We explore both how people live with and across differences, and how diversity is taken up as an object of governance.
