Seminar: Complexities of Integration Studies

Open seminar, 9th of October 2020
Welcome to a half-day digital seminar presented by the ASG DeMIIS. The seminar addresses different aspects of the study of integration with primary focus on Sweden and it takes place on ZOOM.

”In his Christmas speech 2017, the Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven claimed that the integration of immigrants into the Swedish society had been working poorly for a long time. The statement is just one manifestation of the ways the term integration is adopted when addressing immigrants and their settlement in countries of reception. In many countries of the world, it is used by policy makers, academics and civil society actors without vigorous explication or critical evaluation. In practice, national policies often reflect different definitions of what is meant by integration.”
