The Municipality offers a range of services: schools, health, sport and leisure, police, urban development, culture, etc. Etterbeek has a high rate of foreign populations (47% of non-Belgians), as well as a range of different socioeconomic profiles (from disadvantaged to wealthy populations), who tend to form separate socio-demographic groups, sometimes at the expense of social cohesion and integration.
The problems of radicalization are very worrying in Brussels (and Etterbeek) and have become a priority since the recent attacks.

Etterbeek Municipality is working on them with our partners in Brussels and beyond.
