Abstract: This special edition is composed mainly of papers presented at the sixth European Network for Social and Emotional Competence (ENSEC) Conference hosted by Örebro University in collaboration with the city of Gothenburg and held in Stockholm in June, 2017. The theme of the conference and this special issue is “Diversity”, which we find both important and challenging for all countries in the world. Many regions, including Europe and the Middle East, are facing situations where more and more people come for shelter and protection. We need all the knowledge we can get to cope effectively with the situation, and make sure that children of all backgrounds are given the opportunity for positive development. We need knowledge about whether findings from majority groups can be replicated in diverse populations. We also need knowledge about what can be done at a practical level in diverse contexts. The papers in this issue address diversity in various ways, from different perspectives and with different populations.
