Discussions of ‘smart’ cities generally focus on the technologies that can be mobilised to make cities work better, to ensure services are delivered more effectively and to empower citizens in various ways. But another way of considering the smartness of cities is to focus on cities themselves as social organisms and to review how they work, particularly in finding ways of living with difference and generating innovation. This chapter considers these questions with the help of evidence drawn from research on the experience of multiculture as a lived experience in three different and distinctive English urban areas.
