The Centre for Research on Ethnic Relations and Nationalism, CEREN, was established in 1998 at the Swedish School of Social Science (Soc&kom) at the University of Helsinki.
The research at CEREN covers a broad range of topics related to the fields of migration and ethnic relations. Ongoing research at CEREN include issues such as immigration and migrant integration, minority languages and human and indigenous rights, nationalism and identity, media and public debate, and questions concerning Islam, labour market and health.
CEREN organizes regularly seminars and events on current topics within the field of migration and ethnic relations. The research at CEREN tries to contribute to the public debate and CEREN researchers participate actively in both national and international networks. CEREN also Coordinates the Master’s Degree Programme in Ethnic Relations (ERI).
Media and minority languages
Edorta Arana, University of Basque Country gave an interesting and thought provocing presentation at the CEREN Research Seminar in December. His topic was “Media and the challenge of increasing not only the knowledge but the usage of the Basque Language”.
Changing Finland - Are We All Included
What do you get when you have a fully booked festivity hall of more than one hundred guests, add two opposing keynote speakers and four panelists from various public entities and let them discuss diversity in Finland? The seminar Changing Finland – Are we all included? provided interesting points of view and at times a fairly heated debate.
The first day of the ETMU Days conference, that CEREN co-organized together with the Department of Social Research, University of Helsinki and The Society for the Study of Ethnic Relations and International Migration (ETMU), started with a snowy surprise for all participants.
