Abstract :
[en] The CeMi research project highlights the varied cultural and religious funerary needs in north west Europe, the associated challenges and the different ways in which both communities and service providers (e.g. cemetery-crematorium managers, town planners and funeral directors) respond to them, potentially contributing to the EU inclusion strategy. This report shares the findings from a HERA (Humanities in the European Research Area) funded study of eight mid-sized municipalities in six north west European countries: Cork (The Republic of Ireland), Drammen (Norway), Dundee (Scotland, UK), Leeuwarden and Maastricht (Netherlands), Luxembourg City (Luxembourg), Eskilstuna and Umeå (Sweden). It highlights challenges and best practices.
