With its interdisciplinary and multi-paradigmatic approach, this book aims to bring our thinking about diversity one step further towards making coexistence and politics in diverse societies possible. To provide a solid interdisciplinary basis for theorizing diversity, the book brings together the conceptual and methodological tools of political theory, social theory, history, political science, sociology and social anthropology.
