Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


The purpose of this project is to study how the Danish integration laws have been implemented in Gentofte Kommune and which challenges the system- and NGO representatives are facing while dealing with integrating immigrants. The study has taken starting point in sociology and political science in which there has been used a qualitative approach to the subject by conducting research interviews and document analysis. The research interview conducted in the following project has been made in cooperation with Nozad Bamerni who holds the title of interpreter and bicultural consultant for Gentofte Kommune and Jasper Voigt Møllebro from Røde Kors who is a development consultant as a part of the integration team at Røde Kors headquarters on Østerbro, Copenhagen. The interviews form the primary part project regarding the study on how a successful integration process can be ensured. The project has used Grete Brochmann’s theory on citizenship and is based on our understanding of immigrants need for recognition from society. Based on above interviews it has been shown that the collaboration between Gentofte Kommune and Røde Kors is necessary, as Gentofte Kommune is facing a challenge to make immigrants an active part of society. The area Røde Kors’ volunteers can help is among other to introduce immegrants to the local community. Gentofte Kommune has two primary goals regarding integration, first goal is employment and secondly to play an active part of society. From our conducted interviews we can conclude that the inclusion in society is not being prioritized sufficiently in a municipal aspect compared to the defined formal demands. We can through the aim of the law in cooperation with aforementioned interviews conclude that priorities on the area within Gentofte Kommune have been offset, which has caused an increase in bureaucracy within the integration progress instead of creating a more personal contact with the concerned citizens.
