The link between international migration and urban diversity is a central concern. To appreciate this link it is necessary to commence thinking about and researching difference differently. This entails the three key messages that are discussed and summarised in the chapter. (1) The scope of migration-driven diversity goes beyond a proliferation of the origins and ethnic backgrounds of migrants. (2) Paying attention to relational diversity is a useful strategy for getting to grips with some of the complexities of adopting a superdiversity lens. (3) There is a crucial need to engage more with the social implications of dynamic changes in migration-driven diversity. Taking these three assertions, implications for future research and the innovating potential of superdiversity are briefly considered.
