NRP 03 "Problems of Social Integration in Switzerland"

The research efforts of the National Research Programme “Problems of Social Integration in Switzerland” (NRP 03) focus on two major target groups: young people and old people. The implementation plan sets specific research topics for each group, along with the associated objectives. In general terms, the purpose of the programme was to investigate in greater detail a variety of problems that complicate, hinder or even prevent the social integration of young and old people in today’s society, and building on this, to develop practical proposals to resolve these problems.
