During the Almedalen Week in Visby, Forte will arrange two seminars on topics concerning the working environment in female-dominated sectors and the reception of newly arrived children in Sweden during the autumn of 2015. We are also co-organizers of SAMspråk, a full day of seminars on a number of topical issues.

Will you not be in Almedalen 2016? All of our seminars are filmed, so that you can take part in them afterwards, through our YouTube channel and website. Please note that all seminars are held in Swedish.

Our seminars in Almedalen

Monday July 4 at 10:00 am – 10:45 am

Health equity – how do we get there? 

Thanks to medical advances and a developed welfare system the Swedish population is getting healthier. For each generation we live healthier and longer lives, but despite improvements in public health, the gap between those who do best and those who do worst are getting wider. What are the reasons behind these developments? And how do we reverse the trend? The seminar is a part of SAMspråk, a collaboration between Forte, Formas, Riksbankens Jubileumsfond and Vetenskapsrådet.

Tuesday July 5 at 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Poor working environment in female-dominated sectors. How do we reverse the trend?

The working environment in female-dominated sectors, such as health care, social care and services are generally worse than in other parts of the labour market. What actions are needed to change this? What are the research needs? And how can research findings be used more effectively in the workplace?

Wednesday July 6 at 8:00 – 09:15 am

When refugee children meet the Swedish welfare system – the reception of newly arrived children during the autumn of 2015

Newly arrived children and adolescents encounter many different welfare agencies during their first time in Sweden. How does the situation vary for children who arrive with their families compared to those who come alone? What role does the non-profit sector play? And how can research contribute?
