Full-day Nordic conference: Segregation in the Nordic Region – inclusion, young people, and policy
Immigration & development
The aim of the conference is to provide inspiration and successful examples of development work around the Nordic Region in order to combat segregation.
What sort of policies are needed to create an equal footing for everyone, regardless of where they live?
How does segregation affect the opportunities for young people?
What can be learnt from the experiences of our Nordic neighbours?
Find out more about the Nordic countries’ national strategies and reform programmes to combat housing segregation.
At the conference, we’ll also hear more about projects that have managed to promote social inclusion and to cater for young people in the Nordic Region.
Highlights from the programme:
- The Nabo project gets young people’s voices heard. Listen to how young people in the Nordic countries perceive their opportunities to participate in society, to influence, to feel included, and to get involved.
- How does the Danish government’s so-called “ghetto” initiative affect the self-image of residents?
- Moa Tunström from Nordregio will present her research summary The Segregated City on the structural causes of segregation, planning policy, and socio-economic trends in the Nordic Region.
- The inclusion of young people. Find out more about the Swedish Agency for Youth and Civil Society’s report based on interviews with young people.
This is just a snapshot of what’s on offer.
