Diversity in Norwegian academia: on internationalisation, representation, and racism

Welcome to a seminar with Ronald Mayora Synnes addressing the situation of ethnic minorities at Norwegian universities.

The following questions will be discussed: What does ethnic diversity in Norwegian academia consist of? To what extent are ethnic minority groups represented at Norwegian universities, and what positions do these researchers have in Norwegian academia? What barriers do ethnic minorities experience in the sector?
