Welcome to the Fellowship

Topics of the Day
Welcome to the Copenhagen Fellowship! This introduction weekend will be spent learning more about Denmark, Danish society, politics and culture, and about working together in a group. All topics are important, as the former will give you important insights that you will need in order to engage with the issues of the Fellowship, and the latter will form the basis for your participation in the Fellowship together with the other Fellows. To begin the day, Chair of Humanity in Action Denmark, Anders Jerichow, will welcome you all to the Copenhagen Fellowship. Afterwards, a workshop led by Senior Fellows will discuss the Danish political system and the political situation in relation to multicultural issues, which we will be working with throughout the Fellowship. After lunch, we will focus on the more cultural aspects of Danish society in a debate between politician Yildiz Akdogan and radio host Lasse Marker. To end the day, we will take a lovely canal tour of Copenhagen and have dinner together, either at DIS or in a park, depending on the weather.

June 1

Welcome to the Fellowship

Topics of the Day
Today we will focus on group work and group dynamics, which will be of great importance for the rest of the Fellowship. The day will consist of Betzavta workshop facilitated by Tali Padan, who is an expert in the field of conflict management. The Betzavta method enables an experimental way to learn about democracy through practice, challenging the way we speak and the way we behave in groups. The various principles and concepts behind democracy, such as equality, freedom, minorities and majorities are applied in a group context. In order to sufficiently work and discuss together, Tali Padan will provide you with the tools to cooperate together. The way in which the principles are applied in group context allows for the individual to reflect on his/her role in group dynamics. 

Program of the Day

  • “Introduction to the Fellowship program,” by Magnus Harrison, National Director of Humanity in Action Denmark
  • “Freedom in a Group,” Betzavta workshop - Part I, facilitated by Tali Padan
  • “The Necessity of Rules,” Betzavta workshop - Part II, facilitated by Tali Padan

June 2

Understanding Multiculturalism

Topics of the Day
The theme of this year’s Fellowship is: “The Death of Multiculturalism?” But multiculturalism has many faces, and we will use today to explore and define this concept. Multiculturalism can refer to a specific demographic fact, a set of ideologies or philosophical ideas, or a governmental orientation towards a diverse population. In contemporary times, claims have arisen from European far-right groups that multiculturalism undermines social cohesion, and the political mainstream have voiced their concerns of multiculturalism’s failings. However, where multiculturalism has been said to have “utterly failed,” others believe it has brought many benefits. The debate surrounding multiculturalism is likely to continue, but what is multiculturalism really? The day will begin with an introduction to the different concepts of multiculturalism by Associate Professor Nils Holtug. Afterwards, Associate Professor Sune Lægaard will present the relationship between human rights and multiculturalism. Following, Researcher Flemming Røgilds, will discuss his own research on Danish ethnic minorities and multiculturalism from 1990 - 1995. We will end the day with group discussions on how we perceive the notions of culture and multiculturalism, and how we want to use these concepts throughout the Fellowship. 

Program of the Day

  • “What is Multiculturalism?”, a presentation by Nils Holtug, Associate Professor at the Department of Media, Cognition and Communication at the University of Copenhagen
  • “Multiculturalism and Human Rights,” a presentation by Sune Lægaard, Associate Professor at the Department of Culture and Identity at Roskilde University and editor of Res Publica
  • “Thoughts on Multiculturalism: Gender, Generations and Hybrid Identity,” a presentation by Flemming Røgilds, writer, researcher and external lecturer at the Department of Sociology, University of Copenhagen
  • ”Our Perception of Culture," a group discussion among Fellows

June 3

Nationalism And Multiculturalism

Topics of the Day
The most important political unit in the contemporary world is the nation state. Therefore, we will spend today studying the contested relationship between nationalism and multiculturalism. Nationalism refers to the idea that the borders of the political state and the cultural nation should coincide, and is today often associated with xenophobia and intolerance of the presence of other cultures within the nation state. Thus, nationalism and multiculturalism often conflict, but do they have to? Historian Bo Lidegaard will open the day with an introduction to the relationship between nationalism and multiculturalism. Afterwards, Associate Professor Pauline Stolz will present a case study in the political struggle to define the national identity, based on the situation in our neighboring country, Sweden. Per Mouritsen will discuss the diminishing space of tolerance in Western nations, and its link to our liberal ideals. We will end the day by focusing on a specific aspect of Danish multiculturalism, namely the effort to accommodate Greenlandic culture (Greenland being an external Danish territory ) in Denmark.

Program of the Day

  • “Nationalism and Multiculturalism,” a presentation by Bo Lidegaard, Historian and Editor-in-chief of the daily newspaper Politiken
  • “Struggling for the Nation in the Face of Multiculturalism,” a presentation by Pauline Stoltz, Associate Professor at the Department of Culture and Global Studies, Aalborg University
  • “Liberal Intolerance in the Western Nation State”, a presentation by Per Mouritsen, Professor with Special Responsibilities at the Department of Political Science and Government, Aarhus University

  • Discussion amongst Fellows

June 4

Human Rights Day

Topics of the Day
Human rights are an integral part of Humanity in Action’s work and values, and we will thus spend today examining these rights and their relation to multiculturalism with respect to gender, equality, universality and religion. The day will discuss the various ways of tackling violations of human rights in specific human rights cases and in more institutional settings. The day will begin with a presentation by Committee Chairman of the United Nations Ole Olsen, who will give us an insight into how the United Nations works with human rights. Afterwards, Senior Researcher at the Institute For Human Rights (IHR) Eva Maria Lassen will discuss notions of universality, human rights and religion. After lunch, Head of monitoring at the IHR Christoffer Badse will give a presentation on how the institution monitors human rights. Hereafter, Peter Ussing from the IHR will discuss violations of gender and equality rights. We will end the day with a group discussion of the situation of human rights in your own countries and what central violations you find most pertinent to address in order to obtain an understanding of how and why human rights issues differ in different countries. In the evening we will be attending Senior Fellow and founder of the organization Play31 Jakob Silas Lund’s presentation of his new book “Junior Rambo” at Book & Company in Hellerup, run by Isabella Smith, member of the board of Humanity in Action’s Denmark.

June 5

Immigration

Topics of the Day
Immigration formed, and still reshapes, the culturally diverse societies we live in today. It created the conditions under which the consideration of multicultural policies became relevant. Originally encouraged by politicians of Western Europe to expand the workforce to suit industrial and economic needs, today it is often seen a strain on the social cohesion of the nation state. Today, we will examine Denmark’s history of immigration from historical and contemporary perspectives, and reflect on the ways society can both benefit from and be threatened by immigration. The day will be spent at Immigrantmuseet (The Museum of Immigration). Here, a tour of the museum will teach us about the history of immigration in Denmark, and Senior Fellow Sahra-Josephine Hjort will give a presentation about her research on immigration of labour force and social inclusion and facilitate our finishing debate on immigration and multiculturalism.

Program of the Day

June 6

Asylum in Denmark?

Topics of the Day
A constant source of debate in European societies with regards to human rights, the welfare state and multiculturalism, is refugees. Despite priding itself as a humanitarian nation, Denmark has previously been thoroughly criticized by the international community for the ways refugees have been treated in asylum centres, and for not adhering to the current refugee conventions. The number of refugees coming to Denmark is not as high as in many other European countries, though Denmark has become less strict with its refugee policies. This has received much criticism, as some people fear that refugees will unrightfully be granted welfare benefits and could jeopardise traditional Danish culture. To explore these issues, we will hear from professor Jens Vedsted-Hansen about the Danish asylum system, and activist Erik Hansen about his involvement with asylum seekers in Denmark. In the afternoon and evening, we will visit the youth asylum centre Centre Vipperød for unaccompanied minors. We will get a tour of the centre and Head of the Department at Centre Vipperød Patrick Wymer will give a presentation of what it means to be an unaccompanied minor in Denmark. Afterwards, we will have dinner with the youths living at Vipperød and join in on some of their outdoors activities. 

Program of the Day

  • “Introduction to the Danish Asylum System,” a presentation by Jens Vedsted-Hansen, Professor at Aarhus University’s School of Law
  • “Running from Political Persecution,” a presentation by Erik Hansen from Grandparents for Asylum
  • Tour of the Centre Vipperød
  • “Unaccompanied Minors,” a presentation by Patrick Wymer, Head of Department at Centre Vipperød.

Action Projects 

Topics of the Day
One of the most important aspects of being a Humanity in Action Fellow and Senior Fellow is executing an Action Project that tackles a social injustice in your society. Today, Magnus will introduce the concept of the Action Project so that you can start your brainstorm on what issues you would like to work with. Later, we will be so privileged as to join world-renowned photographer Jacob Holdt at his private residence for supper and reflections on societal- and social relations. Jacob Holdt has spent years backpacking across the United States, living with the poorest of the poor as well as with the richest of the rich. This has resulted in his famous photo exhibition ‘American Pictures’ from the 1970’s which depicts everyday inequality and racism in the United States.  He will share his stories and reflections on his experiences with us, while presenting his view on how and why we should integrate with those we shun.

Program of the Day

  • Pre-Action Project, a workshop facilitated by Magnus Harrison, National Director of Humanity in Action Denmark
  • ”On Saying Yes ….to Integrate with Those We Shun”, a presentation by Jacob Holdt, photographer and lecturer

June 10

Exclusion, Persecution, and Flight - The Holocaust and October ‘43

Topics of the Day
Each year, the Copenhagen Fellowship devotes a specific day to the study of the Holocaust and of the events of October 1943 in Denmark. These historical events are the founding thought behind Humanity in Action, as the Holocaust is the extreme example of what can happen when a minority is discriminated and persecuted. This historical lesson continues to be an important part of the program’s mission to instill values of civil action and individual responsibility. The historical example of the value of civil action is Denmark’s “rescue of the Danish Jews” in October 1943, where 95% of Danish Jews managed to flee Nazi persecution with great help from large parts of Danish civil society. In order to examine this event more closely, we will hear a witness account from Bent Melchior and Hanna Skop, refugees of the Holocaust and October ‘43, and visit the exhibition “Home”, which deals with the Jewish refugees’ homecoming in 1945, at the Danish Jewish Museum. To lay the groundwork for understanding these personal stories, we will start the day with a more general introduction to genocide and the Holocaust: Solvej Berlau from the Danish Institute for International Studies will discuss the importance of Holocaust education, and Christian Axboe Nielsen from Aarhus University will give us an overview of the International Criminal Court’s prosecution work against genocide perpetrators. 

Program of the Day

  • “The Importance of Understanding History: The Role of Holocaust Education and Remembrance in Denmark,”  a presentation by Solvej Berlau, Head of Section at the Danish Institute for International Studies
  • "Prosecuting Perpetrators: Historic Development of ICC and Legal Definitions," a presentation by Christian Axboe Nielsen, Assistant Professor of Southeast European Studies at the Aarhus University
  • “Personal stories from October ‘43,” witness accounts from Bent Melchior, former chief Rabbi, and Hanna Skop, German-Jewish refugee
  • Travel to Danish Jewish Museum, Proviantpassagen 6, 1218 København K
  • Guided Tour of “Home” - Exhibition about the Homecoming of the Danish Jewish Refugees in 1945

June 11

Social Cohesion and the Welfare State

Topics of the Day
One of the main topics of debate in Denmark today is the welfare state. What is the future of the welfare state, and who should it include? The Danish welfare state is a concept of government where one of the goals is to create and maintain a sound social cohesion in Denmark, and where the state ensures the protection of the economic and social well-being of its citizens. Denmark prides itself on its welfare, and its citizens pay high taxes in order to receive free health benefits and education. All of this is seen as a major influence on Denmark’s social cohesion, where equal opportunity and social solidarity are key values. However, the welfare state also needs boundaries in order to function. Where should these boundaries be drawn? Various policies such as multicultural policies are seen to threaten the welfare state and thus the social cohesion of Denmark. Today we will explore these issues and begin with a presentation of the history and future of the Danish welfare state by Professor Lars Bo Kaspersen. Afterwards, Professor Garbi Schmidt will discuss her own research study in Copenhagen and what social cohesion means in regards to the different city areas. After lunch journalist Rushy Rashid will discuss how cultural identities and religion should be considered in the Danish health-care system. To end the day, the Liberal politician Bertel Haarder will discuss his ideas on what Denmark’s role is in the EU (another entity seen as undermining the Danish welfare state) and what social cohesion is in Denmark. 

Program of the Day

  • “The Welfare State: History and Future,” a presentation by Lars Bo Kaspersen, Head of Department at Political Science, Professor in Political Sociology at the University of Copenhagen.  
  • “Social Cohesion and Ethnic Diversity: The Dynamics of Social Cohesion in Copenhagen,” a presentation by Garbi Schmidt, Professor at the Department of Culture and Identity at Roskilde University
  • “Ethnicity within the Health-Care System,” a presentation by Rushy Rashid, journalist and writer
  • Keynote: “Social Cohesion in Denmark,” a presentation by Bertel Haarder, Member of Parliament for the Danish Liberal Party

June 12

The Others and The Marginalized

Topics of the Day
A main theoretical concept that is important to understand when discussing issues of multiculturalism and minorities is the concept of “the Other.” The concept of the Other denotes someone and everyone who is not you, that is, someone who is different from you. On a personal level, we are all different from each other, but on a societal scale, some may appear to be more different than others. These are the marginalized minorities, and they often come to represent “the Other” of  the national identity. For that reason, will be today focus on studying and meeting the marginalized and “others” of society. Niels Plough will up open today’s topic by presenting an overview of the marginalized groups in the Danish society. The next presentation by professor Peter Hervik will focus on the discourse and representation of minorities in the Danish media, which is often the medium through which our conception of “the Others” is constructed. We will end the day by splitting into smaller groups and  visit various organizations who, in different ways, work with minorities and marginalized in Danish society. 

Program of the Day

  • “Socially Marginalized in the Danish Welfare State,” a presentation by Niels Ploug, Director of Social Statistics at Statistics Denmark
  •  “Ethnic Minorities in the Danish Media,” a presentation by Peter Hervik, Professor at the Centre for the Study of Migration and Diversity at Aalborg University
  •  “Working with and for the Others,” Muhabet (15 o’clock), GAME, Sabaah, Al-Huda School - Homework Café, Lavuk
  • “Who is 'Other' in your Home Countries?” Group discussion amongst fellows

June 13

Risk Society

Topics of the Day
The term “Risk Society” is the manner in which modern society organizes itself in response to risk. For example, Denmark has had navigate through potential societal risks and threats such as terrorism and climate changes. In other words, society’s preoccupation with the future and safety triggers the notion of risk. In this context, foreign culture, religion and multiculturalism are also seen as potential threats to the security of Danish society. But what are the risks of giving up on multiculturalism and inclusion? To explore these issues, we will begin the day with a consideration of how religion can be seen as a risk to the freedom of speech by Professor Frederik Stjernfelt. Afterwards, Associate Professor Karen Lund Petersen will give an introduction to the history and concepts of risk society, followed by a presentation of how pirates and terrorism creates a political and societal worry, by Senior Researcher Lars Erslev Andersen. We will end the day with a keynote presentation by defense lawyer Bjørn Elmquist about his own experience with terrorism and human rights issues.

Program of the Day

June 16

Discrimination

Topics of the Day
Not all discrimination, prejudice, or inequality is the product of conscious action. Societal inequality is often created by structures and norms that are a product of society itself. This kind of discrimination may be addressed as ‘white privilege’ (depending on the society) or ‘structural- or institutional discrimination’. These terms point out that we still live in unconsciously discriminatory society that give some citizens advantage over others. This is especially true with regards to minorities. To discuss these aspects within a Danish context, the day will begin with attorney Pia Justesen who will give a presentation of racial discrimination in Denmark within a legal framework. Jacob Mchangama will follow with a presentation on affirmative action and positive rights. After this, we will be going to Vestre Fængsel (Vestre Prison), where we will get an exclusive tour of the prison and an introduction to the goals and means of the Danish penal system. Here we will be able to discuss, amongst other things, if individuals or society is to blame for crime, and why so many prisoners are of non-Danish origin. To end the day, Anders Jerichow has invited us to supper at his private residence. Here we will seize the opportunity to share our thoughts on the days’ events and on the subject of white privilege and affirmative action. 

Program of the Day

  • “Racial Discrimination in Denmark and Legal Means to Counteract It,” a presentation by Pia Justesen, attorney and Ph.D, Justadvice

Expressions of Diversity

Topics of the Day
Not all representation or political action needs to take place in newspapers, politics or debates. A lot can be said through culture and art, and today, we will focus on this arena as an entryway into the public debate, as a place for expression of diversity, as well as the methods and effects of voices other than the politicians and the established media. TV host Adrian Lloyd Hughes will give a general introduction to how we may conceive of art and how it might be relevant to discussions on multiculturalism, followed by Ph.D Mehmet Ümit Necef, who will introduce us to the representation of immigrants in Danish cinema. Peter Voss-Knude will share his thoughts on his own work as an artist, and what he has learned about the relationship between art and society. Finally, CEO Niels Righolt will join us to talk about art and intercultural exchange, and to share the notion of Cultural Democracy.

Program of the Day

The Future of Multiculturalism?

Topics of the Day
Having acquainted ourselves with some of the aspects and issues of the debate on multiculturalism, it is time to sum up and ask ourselves what the future for multiculturalism might hold, and what we think it should hold. Are the European leaders right in abandoning this political paradigm? Have the efforts to establish a culturally diverse society failed with the alleged retreat from multiculturalism, or can it be obtained by other means? These are some of the questions we will concern ourselves with today. Associate Professor Søren Hviid Pedersen will begin by presenting us with some arguments against the practice of multicultural policy. After this, Neeni Rasool will share her view on what role culture plays in relations amongst humans, and what role it should play. Lastly, Mette Lindgren Helde will educate us on the sorts of conflicts that may arise from cross-cultural meetings, and introduce us to some of the tools of conflict resolution that can resolve these conflicts. With these presentations in mind, and hopefully also the whole of the Fellowship program you have been through, you will have time at the end of the day to discuss what you see as the future for multiculturalism and diversity. 

Program of the Day

  • “A Case Against Multiculturalism,” a presentation by Søren Hviid Pedersen, Associate Professor at the Department of Political Science and Public Management at the University of Southern Denmark

June 19

Action Project Workshop and Inspiring Activism

Topics of the Day
Democracy will always meet critique and political engagement, which serves to develop society and is a vital part of the critical debate. Today we will explore ways in which to engage in this critical debate by focusing on Action Projects and activism. It is our hope in Humanity in Action that our Fellows and Senior Fellows take upon them the responsibility of engaging with their societies, and this is also why we ask our Senior Fellows to execute an Action Project. Today, we will begin with a workshop facilitated by National Director of Humanity in Action Denmark Magnus Harrison. The idea is to give you an insight into what Action Projects can be and how you can use them after the Fellowship and take a step towards social change by working with the issues you find most important. After the lunch break, Frederik Felding, Student Assistant at Save The Children, will elaborate on how social media and youth lobbyism function in activism, and how these help spread an essential message to politicians and the public. Afterwards, Lars Henriksen, the Chairman of Copenhagen Pride and Co-founder of To Russia With Love Morten Asbjørn Jensen will share and discuss their own experiences with creating Copenhagen Pride and the successful campaign To Russia With Love. Lastly, you will spend time forming your own Action Project groups that you will work with in formulating an Action Project.
