Abstract: Contemporary policy approaches to 'cultural diversity' are increasingly focusing on 'the urban', marking a considerable departure from configurations like biculturalism and multiculturalism in which the space of the nation was viewed as the key arena for the making of diverse and cohesive societies. In this context, this paper analyses the Intercultural City Project (ICP), a multicity planning initiative developed by the private consultancy Comedia, focusing on the ICP's deployment in Auckland, New Zealand, where it was used to rethink issues surrounding diversity and urban planning. The analysis focuses on three key issues that emerge in the ICP: the targeting of cultural diversity and interaction; the rescaled 'urban' version of diversity; and the connections between this model of diversity and neo-liberal urban policies. © 2011 Urban Studies Journal Limited.
