Integration and diversity in the baltic sea region
The Norwegian – Baltic conference Perspectives on integration and diversity in the Baltic Sea Region was held at Oslo and Akershus University College (HIOA) on the 21st and 22nd of November 2013. The conference was the result of a longstanding cooperation between member of staff at HIOA and the University of Latvia and we were happy to welcome more than 40 participants from various departments and institutions both in Norway and abroad.
In spite of their differences, Norway and the Baltic states deal with issues re- lated to integration and diversity on a daily basis. The challenges are seen in various areas of public life, and will need cooperative efforts in order to be dealt with in the future. Thus, the intention of the conference was to discuss and shed light on some perspectives on public policy, research and education in the areas of social work and policy, public administration, media, library and communication studies.
The high quality of the papers and the discussion represent the thinking and experience of men and women experts in their particular fields. Their contributions helped to make the Conference an interesting arena for sharing of these thoughts, and also a meeting ground for future collaboration and projects.
In these proceedings of the conference we have gathered eight papers which we hope will create a background for the future collaboration.
