Activities per year
The results from this interdisciplinary project are expected to lead to a higher degree of societal, scientific, and political awareness regarding older linguistic minorities in Swedish-speaking Finland, and the specific challenges concerning aging well for the Swedish speakers but also for other linguistic minority groups. The project contributes to strengthening the Minority profile at Åbo Akademi University and to expanding interdisciplinary collaboration within the university as well as with other universities where a strong tradition regarding research on linguistic minorities or social gerontology exists.
Members of the steering group of the project are PL Kjell Herberts, professor Åsa von Schoultz, and researcher/political advisor Johan Häggman.
