Here comes Super-Diversity!
ON SUPER-DIVERSITY by Tariq Ramadan

One of the greatest challenges for art and culture, sounded by intellectuals and also by funding bodies, is to represent diversity. But what precisely does this term mean and why does it so often placate rather than produce what it names? Prof. Steven Vertovec, Director of the Max-Planck-Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity (Göttingen, Germany) puts forward the notion of “super-diversity,” noting “the need to re-evaluate conceptions and policy measures surrounding diversity by way of moving beyond an ethno-focal understanding and adopting a multidimensional approach.”

Developing this idea further, while aiming to question and complicate the focus on immigration in the current debate, the prolific and provocative scholar and activist Tariq Ramadan weighs in on the subject. In the resulting essay, translated into Dutch and Arabic, Prof. Ramadan sets out an argument that foregrounds universalism as a necessary, if de-valued, horizon and offers a critique of the uses and limits of dialogue and discourse within the day to day practice of super-diversity.

If there's anything worse than a post-modern philosopher, it's an islamic post-modern philosopher..

Universalism is only 'a necessary' for the leftoid exec's aim of dismantling European civ.

Is Ram in the know? Is he buttering us up for a continent wide Lampedusa?

Cheradenine,

I think that you should look into the baha'i.. Their doctrine of "Unity in Diversity" is part and parcel of their faith in a New World Order..

the baha'i prophet is Baha'u'llah.. he claimed to be the the 2nd coming of "Issa"..

the baha'i are messianic muslims.. their main goal since they began spreading their 'Universalism' is to convince Christians to accept mohammad as a 'Manifestation' of the baha'i god 'allah'

The baha'i are the trojan horse for islam.. because Baha'u'llah is redundant as long as the Jewish Jesus Christ is followed..

Hiya Van Grungy,

I am aware of the baha'i. Yes, another Trojan Horse change 'mechanism' c/o of - and on board with - the globalisers.

Beware of all Messaianic NWO crypto faiths including Roman Catholicism, Anglicans, Neo Pagans, New Agers - all admitted global gubmint freaks with the aim of fusing a one world religion!

At least 'straight' islam is true to itself. My view is that it is here (in the West)FOR conflict and to hasten the fusion.

I want to get married soon, but can I find a church without a wet, pc mc, inter-faith spouting cleric? No!

Dear oh dear. What a tragedy that the Max-Planck-Institute has a department for such idiotic and soft subjects.

The Max-Planck-Institute was the most illustrious institute for research in Physics and theoretical physics. Now, the project of dumbing down education, has led to the monstrosity of a department for the study or "Diversity".

The re-construction of the West will have to start at the university level. It will be a long journey.
