Sputnik discusses Danish migration policies with Professor Michelle Pace

Description

Denmark is stepping up its migrant integration efforts by adopting new hardline legislative measures to regulate low-income mostly Muslim ghettos in the country.

One of the laws implies that migrant babies starting at the age of one must be separated from their families for at least twenty five hours a week for mandatory education in Danish values.

Families that don’t comply with the regulations could face welfare payment cuts.

Denmark is the only country to formally label certain residential areas as ghettos.

Radio Sputnik discussed the issue with Michelle Pace, Professor at the Department of Social Sciences and Business, Roskilde University, Denmark.
