In the research on integration, work has been a dominant theme. This book uses a different approach and highlights the market and consumption. How can consumption contribute to integration?

Much of what we need in everyday life - food, clothing, housing and the possibility of communication - is provided through consumption. It costs to dress for the weather in Norway, and Norwegian school is far from free if you think about everything that is required of packed lunches, clothes, school bags and equipment. Expensive leisure activities may seem exclusive rather than inclusive. The way we organize the housing market, the market for financial services - but also public education and health services, is also of great importance for integration.

Welcome to the launch of the book " Inclusive Consumption. Immigrants' access to and use of public and private goods and services »(Universitetsforlaget 2019).

Coffee, tea and croissants are served from 7 p.m. 8.30. The program starts at 9.00. Sign up here.
