This paper focuses on the growing diversity and multiple identities existing in cities nowadays and on how to generate social cohesion within this framework.

Starting from a theoretical revision of the concepts of diversity, identity and social cohesion, the paper pays attention to the policy and academic debates being generated around these issues as well as on the policy approaches developed in Europe.

Finally, the paper explores previous European research projects on diversity, identity and social cohesion and outlines gaps in this research.
