58 Danish residential areas have ended up on a new list, after the government with the support of, among others, the Danish People’s Party, the Conservatives and the Socialist People’s Party, who according to the political plans must “prevent parallel societies”.

The agreement means that no less than 100,000 people with non-Western backgrounds will be subject to special requirements. According to Ritzau, the ultimate goal of the agreement is that the proportion of people with non-Western backgrounds may not exceed 30 percent in the residential areas.

“It is absolutely crucial to ensure a welfare society where you meet people who are different from yourself in everyday life,” says Minister of the Interior and Housing Kaare Dybvad Bek (S) to Ritzau.

‘The agreement expands the number of residential areas that may be the subject of a special effort to ensure a mixed composition. This is done by focusing on areas that are at risk of developing into ‘parallel societies,’ ”he says.

A showdown with the ‘bias’

It is a “bias” that has arisen over the past 20 years that the government wants to combat, says the Minister of Housing and the Interior.

And he points out, according to Ritzau, that “children who grow up in vulnerable housing areas do not get the same opportunities as children who grow up elsewhere.”

There are a number of well-known points in the new agreement. Persons with work or education are given priority for housing in the areas, just as it will also be possible to approve ‘strategic demolition’ if there is a desire for ‘urban development or transformation’ of the 58 areas on the list.

Of the 58 residential areas, which is placed on the list, 13 of them can be found in Copenhagen.

This means that Copenhagen by length is the municipality with the most residential areas on the new list. The 13 residential areas in the City of Copenhagen can be found below.
