Centre of Urban History, Culture and Media (CUHCM)

The Centre investigates how cultural diversity is beneficial for creativity and innovation for future cosmopolitan cities and to enhance the concerns of how minorities of different types are marginalized, stigmatized and even rejected in the current socio-political environment.

  • To investigate the causes of marginalization of specific groups, and how these groups could be made to feel more accepted

  • To investigate the tension between the integration and diversity of society and how culture is inherent in a complex industrial society

  • To identify the institutional and cultural reservoirs that foster social resilience and trust
