    While most Greenlanders in Denmark are doing well, a minority group (6-10%) live under marginalized and socially isolated circumstances most (about 1/3) in the larger cites of Aalborg, Aarhus, Copenhagen, Esbjerg and Odense. Nation-wide initiatives to help improve the living conditions of this minority group were launched in 2013 and follow-up initiatives commenced in 2017, spreading beyond the five initial cities.
    This talk begins with a discussion of how being marginalized as a Greenlander in Denmark has been described in the literature and the factors that may lead to marginalization. We follow this with a description of the initiatives that are currently running in Denmark under the state-supported “Strategy for marginalized Greenlanders in Denmark” and the rationale for implementing these initiatives. We end the talk with a presentation and discussion of the preliminary results from a qualitative research project focusing on project leaders’ and field workers' perceptions of the barriers and facilitators to the success of the initiatives under the Strategy.
