Across the globe, more people are living in cities, be it through the movement of domestic populations from the hinterlands or via international migration. This book offers answers to one of the most pressing questions of our day: Is globalization drawing urban populations together or tearing them apart? Contributors analyze the conditions under which cities from a broad range of geographical regions serve as sites of ethnic and national discord or amity. Particular attention is paid to the influence of economic globalization, cities’ entrenched ethno-linguistic configurations, and urban political institutions.
