National research programme in segregation

The Swedish Research Council is responsible for a ten-year national research programme in segregation. The programme is part of the Government’s strategy and action plan to counteract and reduce segregation in Sweden, and covers research in all scientific fields, as well as cross-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary approaches.

Goals of the research programme

The research programme shall contribute knowledge that increases understanding of segregation and enables evidence-based reforms that can reduce and counteract segregation in Sweden. In this way, it will contribute to the Government’s goals of reduced segregation, equal conditions in childhood, adolescence and later life, and good life chances for all.

Strategic research agenda the core of the programme

Based on the goals of the research programme and a mapping of actors and the research funding available in the area, three primary activities are proposed for the research programme:

  • Initiating research into segregation.
  • Strengthening the long-term development of the research field..
  • Promoting accessibility and dissemination of research and knowledge about segregation, in order to contribute to knowledge-based practice.

The agenda also includes a description of the research area's conditions and needs.

Participating actors

When working on the design of the programme, we are maintaining a dialogue with several different actors. Three advisory groups are linked to the programme:

  • A programme committee with representatives from Forte, Formas and Vinnova.
  • A knowledge committee with organisations that work practically on issues related to segregation.
  • A reference group with active researchers in segregation.
