The UiO:Nordic Conversation
Nordic conditions: What happened to humanity?
Have our Nordic societies gotten colder? How do we respond to the refugee crisis and challenges related to integration?
NORDHOST, a UiO:Nordic research project, has examined how Nordic civil societies responded to the refugee crisis. How many should be allowed in? Who should they be? What responsibility do we assume, not just as state, but as society, by accepting refugees? And is civil disobedience a legitimate reaction to stricter immigration policies?
Professor of social anthropology Thomas Hylland Eriksen will give an introduction on the character of Nordic hospitalities. He will then be joined by Åsa Linderborg and Sturla Stålsett for a conversation about Nordic conditions. The conversation will be led by UiO:Nordic's director Tore Rem.
The UiO:Nordic Conversation is a new venue for discussion about current Nordic issues. Each Talk is introduced by researchers connected to the interdisciplinary strategic research area UiO:Nordic at the University of Oslo. These monthly events will highlight research that can offer new perspectives on both current topics and our shared history.
