SESSION 2 / Segregation: Inequality in housing and geographically concentrated communities
How are the national, civil society and local actors addressing the challenges and opportunities of immigrant integration in the Nordic countries?
Inequality and segregation in housing is both an effect and a cause of broader educational, economic and social differences, often especially affecting people of immigrant background. In 2020, the challenge of containing outbreaks in some local areas revealed how health outcomes can interact with geographic concentration of minority communities in lower-income housing areas. What key challenges in terms of segregation are the Nordic countries currently facing, and how can these be addressed? Have the events of 2020 revealed new aspects to problems, or offered new solutions?
This session will bring together Nordic representatives of national agencies, civil society organisations and local government or housing organisations to address these questions and exchange ideas.
