The Wider Image: In Danish 'ghettos', immigrants feel stigmatised
In urban areas of Denmark officially designated as "ghettos", some residents feel stigmatised and excluded from mainstream society. Denmark is the only country to formally classify certain residential zones as ghettos. An area fits into the category if more than half of its inhabitants originate from non-Western countries and it also matches certain other criteria, such as unemployment exceeding 40 percent. Denmark has struggled for decades with how to integrate immigrants into its welfare state. The public debate intensified in 2015 with the arrival of large groups of refugees from conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa. The anti-immigrant Danish People's Party became the second-largest party in parliament in an election that year. In March this year, Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen of the Liberal Party announced a plan aimed at boosting the integration of immigrants and eliminating ghettos - a word that is the same in Danish - by 2030. Measures include banning criminals from moving into the areas, giving double punishment for crimes committed in ghettos, and demolishing then rebuilding parts of the zones.

The Wider Image: Kazakh metal workers' town thrives on booming demand
On the surface, the Kazakh town of Aksu looks like a Communist stereotype. Its metals factory is the world's biggest and for generations it has provided residents with employment, healthcare, education and leisure. But there's a crucial difference. The Eurasian Resources Group factory is controlled by three billionaires and though the Kazakh government also has a stake it's a far cry from the Communist model of ownership by the proletariat. These days one in five of Aksu's 50,000 residents works at the factory and it is a model for the country's state-sponsored capitalism under which tycoons are responsible for the welfare of "mono towns" that depend on their business.

The Wider Image: Homeless in America's tent cities
Clouds pass above Camp Hope in Las Cruces, New Mexico October 6, 2015. Camp Hope describe themselves as "alternative transitional living project for the homeless". Around 50 people live at the camp. At homeless encampments from Seattle, Washington state to Las Cruces, New Mexico, residents live away from the dangers of life on the streets, saying the stability helps them work towards their goals. Despite a shortage of affordable housing for the poor and budget constraints on social welfare programmes, many U.S. cities have clamped down on tent cities in the past few years.
