How do cosmopolitan aspirations articulate within an illliberal system of migration management? How does this extreme diversity produce complex everyday dynamics in urban space? Gathering geographers, historians, anthropologists, sociologists, and urbanists, this workshop aims to explore the dynamics of coexistence, inclusion and exclusion in the cities of the two shores of the Gulf. It contributes to theoretical debates over various ways of experiencing and managing urban diversity in other "global cities", belonging both to integrative and non-integrative contexts.

RSVP by February 26 to iran@princeton.edu
