1 ACADEMIC PROGRAM A SOCIALLY COHERENT SOCIETY: PROSPECTS FOR SOCIETAL DEVELOPMENT IN DENMARK AND THE NETHERLANDS 17 MARCH 2015

2 INTRODUCTION Historically, Denmark and the Netherlands have both been successful in establishing a socially coherent society. This is e.g. reflected in high levels of subjective wellbeing, trust and social security. At this academic event, leading Danish and Dutch social scientists discuss how these qualities of Danish and Dutch societies are to be maintained in the future. The point of departure is that these qualities cannot be taken for granted as both societies transform both demographically and socially. The family structure gets more fragile and the populations get more ethnically diverse in times in which our societies face the challenges of maintaining a solid economy. At the symposium, the character, the implications and the potential constructive reactions to these societal developments will be discussed. In the general sessions, leading academic scholars will present their research on Denmark and the Netherlands. In the roundtable session, participants will be invited to enter the discussions under the headings of Happiness and wellbeing challenges and solutions. Their Majesties the King and Queen of the Netherlands as well as their Royal Highnesses the Crown Prince and Crown Princess of Denmark and the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands will attend selected sessions at the conference. Finally, all participants are invited to take part in a reception hosted by the Netherlands Embassy and Aalborg University following the conference. The symposium will be moderated by journalist and philosopher Stine Jensen and Professor in Scandinavian Language and Culture Henk van der Liet. Venue: Aalborg University Copenhagen, A.C. Meyers Vænge 15, Auditorium ACM15
