Immigration to Denmark

An Overview of the Research Carried Out from 1999 to 2006 by the Rockwool Foundation Research Unit

By Poul Chr. Matthiessen

In this book, Dr. Poul Chr. Matthiessen, Denmark's foremost professor of demography, presents a broad overview of the process of immigration to Denmark and the integration of immigrants into Danish society. He examines a number of related topics, such as immigrants' patterns of residence, immigrants' education and their command of the Danish language, crime, the position of immigrants in relation to the social security system, and the significance of immigration for public finances. The topics also include the attitudes of Danes to their new fellow-citizens. For example, are Danes more or less anti-immigrant than other Europeans? And have the Danes' views on foreigners changed over time? The book is both an overview and a detailed presentation of immigration to Denmark since 1960, and its impact on Danish society.
