3.4.6 Other relevant issues
In recent years, the Danish Ministry of Refugees, Immigration and Integration Affairs (Ministeriet for Flygtninge, Indvandrere og Integration) has been improving the use of cultural activities as a means in the integration process of immigrants and ethnic minorities. The Ministry has established a couple of funding pools to be applied by local organisations and initiatives, e.g. pools to improve participation of people with other ethnic backgrounds in sporting clubs and other leisure time activities (see also chapter 4.2.4). Also, the Ministry of Culture has engaged in initiatives to make the new Danes a part of the cultural life in Denmark. The reports Culture for all and Reach out! Are, for the first time in Danish cultural policy, including the new Danes in a strategy on increasing the involvement of this group in cultural activities.
