Globalization has dissolved old hierarchies and brought cultures closer together; however, this newfound cultural proximity has also created challenges of integration and migration facing Denmark and Europe today. How do traditionally homogeneous countries, especially welfare states where social cohesion has been a factor of their structural success, evolve with the increase of migration? Making Denmark your classroom – and then Sweden and Italy on your Study Tours – you challenge your own opinions and explore the social, political, and cultural implications of the conflicts in question.

Focusing on Denmark, Sweden, and Spain, we investigate the social, cultural, and political mechanisms lying at the heart of cultural conflicts and integration issues.
