Institute for Integration and Participation

Our mission at the Institute for Integration and Participation is to promote participation in social assets, values, and basic human rights.

Our work focuses on individuals whose social disadvantages restrict their power of self-determination. Our five thematic focuses explore and analyse how social work interventions can support disadvantaged individuals with improving their difficult life-situations and how social participation can be enabled to benefit those in need. We reveal those interconnections, underlying conditions, and solutions that help mitigate or avoid difficult situations.

About us

Institute staff undertake research and development, provide services, run further education programmes, and teach on the FHNW’s Bachelor and Master of Arts in Social Work.
