Mutual Integration – A Study of Integration Beyond Formal Equality
In my dissertation I argue for a mutual integration, that is: the onus to integrate should not be put on immigrants alone; citizens or locals have responsibility as well. Unlike most on-going debates about integration, which focuses upon distribution of rights, I explore how some prevailing structures that are beyond formal equality can also affect immigrants’ participation, mislead us in our interpretations of social conflicts, and prevent us from correcting past wrongs that still make up our present.
