Imagine: you are a new Dutch person. You and a few other migrants now live in a posh neighbourhood that only housed autochthonous Dutch people until now. The municipality has organised a meeting for the new and old neighbours to get to know each other.

The municipal secretary interviews the new entrants and a few inhabitants of the district who have lived there for years. He/she is also the chairman or chairwoman.

In the role play you particularly emphasise one of these new concepts, without mentioning them by name: assimilation, segregation and diversity.


If you are given the role of someone who has lived in this neighbourhood for years, you will try to find out whether these newcomers ‘fit in your neighbourhood’.
To conclude the roleplaying game, the moderator judges who expressed themselves most clearly, using the concepts of assimilation, segregation, and diversity.
