Nikolai Lang and his one man think tank Danish Center for Integration Analysis (DCIA) has decided to end the Danish debate about integration once and for all. His goal is to find the Danish ideal for the Perfect Danish Muslim. He then wants to introduce all Danish Muslims to this ideal.
Nikolai Lang takes a scientific approach in order to understand the Danes. He wants to avoid the usual media and policy spin. He uses focus groups and telephone interviews. He questions experts in Danish culture - and presents his results for a group of young second generation immigrants in Gellerup Parken in Århus. Are they ready to follow his 10 rules for perfect integration?
