Samfunnsutvikling og demokratisering

Dette er en samleside for det tematiske satsingsområdet samfunnsutvikling og demokratisering

Det er avgjørende for samfunnsutvikling og demokratisering at hele befolkningen inkluderes gjennom utdanning, arbeid, innflytelse og tilhørighet. UiT skal være globalt engasjert også gjennom samarbeid med forsknings- og utdanningsinstitusjoner i sør. UiT skal utvikle kunnskap om:

  • Velferdsstatens kompetansebehov og om fremragende profesjonsutdanninger
  • Endring i samfunn og kultur som følge av globalisering og teknologisk, demografisk, sosial, juridisk og økonomisk utvikling
  • Grunnlaget for samarbeid og konflikter i nordområdene
  • Kultur- og identitetsbygging gjennom forskning, formidling og kunst
  • Likestilling i lys av regional, nasjonal og global utvikling
