    Divercities explores some of the claims, agencies and urban practices that make up the everyday lived spaces in Beirut, Cairo and Tehran. Urban governance as practices by different lobby groups and social agents is analysed through a range of case studies that highlight different narratives of space, including those expressed through urban activism; strolling and mobility; parks and prostitution; music in daily life; museum, heritage and memory; and territory and everyday practices. The volume is the outcome of a multidisciplinary three-day event held in Beirut in December 2013, jointly organized by the Orient-Institut Beirut and the Goethe-Institut Lebanon.
