This course explores whether a multicultural Europe is sustainable given the current migrant crisis and Europe’s major culture clash. Focusing on Denmark, Sweden, and Spain, we investigate the social, cultural, and political mechanisms lying at the heart of cultural conflicts and integration issues. This course analyzes theoretical concepts such as integration, assimilation, multiculturalism, recognition, cultural norms, identity, nationalism, and tolerance.
