Abstract Societies worldwide are becoming increasingly diverse, particularly as the result of globalisation and migration (Castles et al. 2013). Migrants come from a wider variety of countries of origin, speak more different languages, have a wider variety of migrant statuses and are more often male than female. Moreover, this wide variety of people tends to concentrate in certain parts of certain cities, creating super-diverse places (Vertovec 2007; Meissner & Vertovec 2015). Some scholars argue that this process of diversification complicates the creation of social capital. As people are inclined to connect to similar others, urban residents may prefer to live side-by-side without mixing socially (Reynolds & Zontini 2013). This Dossier studies the interplay between diversity and the various dimensions of social capital in diverse neighbourhoods.
