Academia and Multiculturalism

The University of Iceland strives to encourage education, research, and support for informed discourse on multiculturalism. Therefore, in autumn 2015, a working group was established, comprising representatives from all University schools, central administration, and the student body. Its scope quickly grew.

The working group was conceived as a forum for gathering expertise within UI in the field of multicultural studies with the aim of building bridges and spreading the knowledge that UI has to offer. The group works under the name of 'Academia and Multiculturalism' and focuses on issues relating to immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers.
