With more than half the human race living in cities for the first time in history, and with the multi-ethnic and multi-cultural character of all major cities increasing rapidly, clearly thought out development of cities is one of the most crucial factors for economic growth, social cohesion and democratic governance world-wide. Yet cities are also the major focus of ethnic conflict and inter-group confrontation. How can we govern cities in ways that maintain social cohesion and draw on the assets of all cultural/ethnic groups in times of increasing diversity?
