Diversity & Inclusion

A department at NTNU Social research

About us

The goal of inclusion and participation includes everyone, regardless of background, prerequisites and functional ability. Increased ethnic diversity and greater awareness of what contributes to marginalization and exclusion is an important starting point for research and activity at NTNU Social Research's Department of Diversity and Inclusion.

The researchers at Diversity and Inclusion are concerned with making sure that the research has political relevance and contributes to improvements in both welfare schemes and societal conditions for groups that for some reason falls outside of the norm.

Diversity & inclusion

In recent years, the department has focused it's research on four main areas, all of which can be summarized as studies of welfare policy and -practice, and not least about how these areas affect users.

The four areas are immigration and refugee-related topics, disability and society, school and educational research and child welfare services. Diversity and inclusion also conducts research on integration, children, youth and gaming, families and their encounters with child welfare services, welfare policy and living conditions.

Diversity and inclusion is a vibrant and competitive professional environment that asserts itself nationally and internationally, and an arena where researchers at all levels can meet and master new challenges.

The department's employees have competence and background from fields such as sociology, health sciences, social work, disability and society, pedagogy, psychology, social anthropology and philosophy.
