Job vacancy: postdoctoral Researcher Project Cities of Migration

31 July 2017

The Postdoctoral Researcher will be involved in the project ‘CITIES OF MIGRATION: THEORIZING THE ‘DIVERSITY OF MIGRATION-RELATED DIVERSITY’ IN CITIES.’ The project focuses on how cities respond to different types of migration-related diversity. Cities of migration face increasingly ‘floating populations’ and a growing complexity of migration-related diversity, described also as ‘superdiversity.’ However, there is ‘no one size fits all.’ There will be superdiverse cities, but also multicultural cities, gateway cities, divided cities, expat cities, and many other types. Different types of migration-related diversity can also have different governance implications, both for the governance of diversity in cities (such as integration) as well as for the development of urban identities.
