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.
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.
Calls within the programme
This is one of four new national research programmes that the Swedish Research Council has been mandated by the Government to establish.
