Scandinavia’s segregated cities – policies, strategies and ideals
4 Apr 2019
This report compares the strategies to counter segregation which the governments of Denmark, Sweden and Norway launched in 2018.
The comparison is conducted at two levels. Firstly, the report carries out a comparison of the “problem definition” in each country, looking at factual, explanatory and normative claims made about segregation. Secondly, the report compares the overall policy design and combination of focus areas of each strategy. The strategies are found to differ significantly both with regard to the highlighted dimensions of segregation, the causal explanations which are advanced, and the proposed policies which are intended to address segregation.
