Governing Immigration in Advanced Welfare States: The Scandinavian Case
Grete Brochmann, University of Oslo
2:00 in Mandel Reading Room 303


The Scandinavian countries today face different kinds of challenges in relation to multicultural immigration. Questions of social cohesion and the sustainability of societal formation have been raised in all three countries over the last 10-15 years. Grete Brochmann will describe and analyze the dynamics generated when these challenges meet the traditionally equality oriented and ethnically homogeneous Scandinavian countries. She asks how the political approaches available for governance are formed by the institutional structure of the region, in which the welfare state plays an essential role. Information about the speaker can be found here.


This event is co-sponsored by the Center for German and European Studies, Department of Politics, International Global Studies, Heller School for Social Policy and Management, and Department of Sociology.
