Diversity, Trust, and Two-Way Integration (Mobile Futures)

Diversity, Trust, and Two-Way Integration (Mobile Futures) is an interdisciplinary, action-oriented research project that strives to promote a fair and inclusive society through focusing on integration as a trust-based, two-way process. The guiding principle is that a fair and inclusive society is more resilient when facing the challenges of demographic changes.

The primary goals of the project are:

  • to promote a more diverse cultural and working life,
  • to identify and combat structural discrimination and racism,
  • and ultimately to contribute to changing public narratives on migration and integration to focus on the ways in which Finland can become more inclusive and welcoming.

To achieve these goals, Mobile Futures employs the Living Lab methodology. The Living Lab is a method of co-creation and a way to develop genuine collaboration between researchers and different stakeholders.

In the Mobile Futures consortium, the relationship between trust and integration is studied interdisciplinary, through four work packages.

  • Trust in Law
  • Trust in Information
  • Trust in the Lanour Market
