Abstract

European populations are changing fast (Rechel B, Mladovsky P, Ingleby D, Mackenbach JP, McKee M. Migration and health in an increasingly diverse Europe. Lancet 2013;381:1235–45). Social categories such as ethnicity, migration background, country of origin, socio-economic status and gender exist alongside each other but need to be considered jointly in order to better capture the ever increasing complexity of communities and their inhabitants. In the last decade, the concept of “superdiversity” (Vertovec S. Super-diversity and its implications. Ethnic and Racial Studies 2007;30:1024–54) has emerged: it aims to capture the further diversification of diversity and refers specifically to urban communities where established immigrant groups mix with newly arriving immigrants, adding to the already existing social, ethnic and cultural diversity.

Zusammenfassung

Bevölkerungen in Europa verändern sich schnell (Rechel B, Mladovsky P, Ingleby D, Mackenbach JP, McKee M. Migration and health in an increasingly diverse Europe. Lancet 2013;381:1235–45). Soziale Kategorien wie Ethnizität, Migrationshintergrund, Herkunftsland, sozioökonomischer Status und Geschlecht existieren nebeneinander, sollten aber einer gemeinsamen Betrachtung unterzogen werden, damit die wachsende Komplexität in Communities und bei ihren Bewohnern besser erfasst und verstanden werden kann. Im vergangenen Jahrzehnt ist das Konzept der Superdiversität (Vertovec S. Super-diversity and its implications. Ethnic and Racial Studies 2007;30:1024–54) aufgekommen: es zielt darauf ab, die weitere Diversifizierung vorhandener Diversität zu fassen und bezieht sich spezifisch auf urbane Communities, in denen es zu einer Vermischung schon etablierter mit neuen Migrantengruppen kommt und so die vorhandene soziale, ethnische und kulturelle Diversität weiter ansteigt.
