Panel Discussion: Majority White Populations in Europe on the Margins

Presented by Open Society Initiative for Europe, in cooperation with the Embassy of Canada to Germany and the Maytree Foundation

Wednesday, June 4
Venue: Embassy of Canada, Leipziger Platz 17, 10117 Berlin

Exclusion is not only a problem for minorities; those who identify themselves as belonging to the “ethnic” or “religious” majority population can also suffer political, economic, social and cultural exclusion. At Home in Europe will soon publish research reports from six European cities, examining the experiences of these communities at the local level. As a prelude to the publications, preliminary findings will be presented from the cities of Aarhus, Berlin and Manchester as well as an overview from all cities. Experiences of mainstream low-income communities will be discussed as well as challenges and opportunities for more effective inclusion policies and practices at the local level.
