Ghettos must go: Government presents plan “‘One Denmark without Parallel Societies: No Ghettos in 2030” in Copenhagen underprivileged area

NordenBladet – Denmark’s government presented its plan to tackle social problems in what it defines as ‘ghettos’ on Thursday as eight ministers visited the Mjølnerparken area of Copenhagen. Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen said the plan – which contains a number of potentially controversial elements – was not about race or religion.

But too many Danish residents of non-Western backgrounds were not contributing to society, and the government was not prepared to accept that, the PM said according to newspaper Politiken.

Rasmussen made his comments as he, along with seven other ministers, presented the ‘ghetto plan’ in Mjølnerparken, an underprivileged area of Nørrebro in Copenhagen that is included on the Ministry of Transport and Housing’s ‘ghetto list’.

The plan – titled ‘One Denmark without Parallel Societies: No Ghettos in 2030’ – was also published on the government’s website on Thursday.
