Here you will find a list of publications that relates to gender, gender equality and ethnic diversity in research, including youth’s interests and results in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
The list primarily consists of publications which is based on a Norwegian context. International publications are also included, mainly related to ethnic diversity as a thematic area. This is because there is less research on this topic in Norway.
To some extent, the list also include “grey” literature such as working papers. The list is in reverse chronological order and will be continuously updated.
