Updates and new concepts to the Glossary of Integration

The first edition of the Glossary of Integration was published in 2021. In autumn 2023, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment of Finland commissioned the Finnish Terminology Centre to undertake a terminology project with the aim of updating 15 concept descriptions of the glossary and expanding the glossary with new concepts. The concepts will be given Finnish terms and equivalents in Swedish and English. The concept descriptions will be given in all three languages.

Methods of terminology work are used in the preparation of the glossary to ensure that the definitions and term recommendations reflect the underlying concept system. This, in turn, helps terminology users understand differences and relations between the concepts.

The terminology work will be carried out by a terminologist of the Finnish Terminology Centre in close collaboration with subject field experts from the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment of Finland. The glossary will be ready by the end of 2024.
