In Oslo representatives from the public sector, public institutions, private companies, academy and cooperatives will discuss the correlation between ethnic segregation and the housing system, exploring different trajectories of immigrants’ adaption strategies to the housing market. As the Oslo’s non-native population continues to grow both in size and proportion—according to projections by 2030, immigrants and their descendants will constitute the 50 percent of its population—it remains to be seen how Oslo will evolve.
The event will focus on what are the barriers that impede immigrants to settle and integrate? What characterizes settlement patterns of different immigrant groups in Oslo? How to create inclusive housing stock that last over time? What could be the role of public sector in this? What are other actors who should be involved and activate to respond to these issues?
