This Research Handbook offers, for the first time, a comparative approach to current diversity management concerns facing nations. Spanning 19 countries and across Africa, it covers age, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, national origin and the intersection of various dimensions of diversity. The multicultural and multi-country teams of contributors, leading scholars in their own countries, examine how the various actors react, adopt and manage the different dimensions of diversity, from a multitude of approaches, from national to sectoral and from tribes to trade unions, but always with a comparative, multi-country perspective.

‘In light of the growing attention to and evolving definition of diversity worldwide, this Research Handbook provides important insights on the complexity of and challenges to diversity management. This edited book of readings spans the entire spectrum of diversity, ranging from cross-national differences to managing differences across people within a single country. A must-read for researchers, practitioners and policy-makers to help them better understand and benefit from these developments.’
– Rosalie L. Tung, Simon Fraser University, Canada
