Resumé

Like many other EU-countries, specifically those with a similar
universal welfare state system, Denmark is interested in developing and
utilising all existing labour potentials within its economy. However, in doing
so, the country is challenged by growing globalisation, outsourcing as well as
pressure on the country’s competitiveness coupled with demographic
deficiency, aging and still growing demands on the universal welfare state.
Immigrants, specifically those with a national origin in non-EU countries, are
particularly interested within such a context. Besides their presence and
attitudes being continuously debated and contested politically, immigrants
represent both a burden as well as an investment cost for the universal welfare
state. Like in many other EU-countries, they represent a challenge to the highly
appreciated ‘national social cohesion’. Denmark is therefore, interested in
keeping those immigrants who contribute to the development of the universal
welfare state, while reducing the burden of the others. Thus, the controversial
question arises: whom among the immigrants from non-western countries will
chose to stay in their new country and who will emigrate again? The following
is an empirical clarification of this issue, the state of the art and the attitudes
and future trends, based on two sets of comprehensive quantitative data
collection.
