More people from more places are migrating to more places, leading to greater linguistic, religious and ethnic diversity, especially in urban areas. In this video, STEVEN VERTOVEC analyzes this super-diversification and considers how societies can best respond to the challenges it presents. With sources ranging from U.N. and World Bank migration data to more ethnographic, everyday research, Vertovec observes that people’s concerns about migration are exacerbated by their tendency to wildly overestimate its scale. Urging stakeholders to consider the key role that social media has come to play in defining attitudes towards diversification, Vertovec also highlights the scientifically proven benefits that result from real, positive interactions between people from different backgrounds.
