The so-called ‘Ghetto areas’ in Denmark refer to areas with large neighbourhood
ethnic density. These areas are much debated in Danish politics, most lately in
the New Year speech of our prime minister. However, what is the evidence behind
this debate? The seminar renders research perspectives on the possible
negative and positive consequences of living in ‘Ghetto areas’ – on health, social
life, education and employment.
