How does increasing migration influence relations between existing cultural and ethnic groups?

What are the benefits and challenges of diversity and inclusion in the labor market?

The role of diversity and inclusion in the workplace is changing. This is primarily due to rapid technological advancements, globalization, immigration, increased demand for skills and education, and in part because of the worldwide effects of an ageing workforce. Globalization also seems to bring common phenomena with it—one of which is migrants being segmented to the darkest sides of the labor market. What are the main drivers of ethnic segregation in the labor market, what are the effective means and best practices of overcoming them? What are the roles and benefits for various stakeholders?

Radicalisation – responsibility of immigrants or local community members?

What kind of local communities tend to radicalise more? Is Estonian society open for a new behavioural and belief system, which could prevent radicalisation and various violence occurrences? In this workshop, we take a look at two target groups, local community and immigrants’ attitude, and discuss how on one hand the ability of local population to accept new and sometimes unusual behavioural models, and on the other hand immigrants’ readiness to make changes in their habits to accept Estonians lifestyle, influence the likelihood of radicalisation. The main focus is on preventing radicalisation.

The aim of this workshop is to analyze the ways of addressing the themes that may evoke strong emotional reactions, or may be strongly intertwined with national identity. We discuss different methods of teaching history in the school, especially in the multi-national class. The workshop is meant to study issues of historical memory and public history, in particular, what role may history lessons play in the conflict resolution in the multicultural societies? How to deal with situations in society where there are different histories? Are history lessons meant to educate patriots or citizens?

This workshop will provide opportunity for participants to develop understanding of diversity competence and the importance of inclusive leadership by all members of an organisation.

Vene vähemused ja vene migrantrahvastik – lõimumise väljakutsed ja perspektiivid Eestis ja Norras

Antud töötoas esitletakse Tallinna ülikooli ja Norra Bergeni ülikooli teaduskoostööprojekti tulemusi. Tulemused kajastavad lõimumisega seotud erinevusi kahes riigis – Eestis ja Norras, ja nende seoseid vene vähemuste lõimumise ja kultuurilise kohanemise hoiakute kujunemisega.

Radikaliseerumine – immigrantide või kohaliku kogukonna liikmete vastutus?

Millised kohalikud kogukonnad kipuvad rohkem radikaliseeruma? Kas Eesti ühiskond on avatud uuele käitumis- ja ususüsteemile, mis võiks ära hoida radikaliseerumist ning vägivallailminguid? Antud töötoas vaatleme kahe sihtrühma, kohaliku kogukonna ja sisserändajate suhtumist. Arutame, kuidas ühest küljest kohaliku elanikkonna võime aktsepteerida uusi ja mõnikord tavatuid käitumismudeleid ning teisest küljest sisserändajate valmisolek muuta oma kombeid, et aktsepteerida eestlaste elustiili, mõjutavad radikaliseerumise tõenäosust. Tähelepanu keskmes on radikaliseerumise ärahoidmine.

Mälu konfliktid ajalootundides

Antud töötoa eesmärk on analüüsida, kuidas käsitletakse teemasid, mis võivad tekitada väga tugevat emotsionaalset reaktsiooni või olla rahvusliku identiteediga tihedalt põimunud. Arutleme ajaloo õpetamise eri meetodeid koolis, eriti eri rahvusest õpilastega klassis. Eesmärk on uurida ajaloolise mälu ja rahva ajaloo küsimusi ning eelkõige seda, kuidas saab ajalootundide abil lahendada konflikte mitmekultuurilises ühiskonnas. Kuidas toimida eri olukordades ühiskonnas, kus on erinevad ajalood? Kas ajalootundides tuleks kasvatada patrioote või kodanikke?

Kaasav juhtimine toetamas mitmekesisust haridussektoris

Aina tähtsam on muutumas organisatsioonide võimekus olla mitmekesised ja kaasavad. Aga mida see tegelikult tähendab ja kuidas saavad organisatsioonid muutuda kaasavamaks? Üks peamisi katsumusi, mis organisatsiooni ees seisab, on arendada kõikide töötajate pädevust ja suurendada kindlustunnet, et võtta omaks organisatsiooni mitmekesisus. See töötuba pakub osalejatele võimalust arendada arusaamist mitmekesisusega seotud pädevusest ja sellest, kui tähtis on kõikide organisatsiooni liikmete kaasav juhtimine.
