Born in Norway – Pakistani Parents; Fatima’s Story

Fatima is a 25-year old woman who has been willing to share with us her experiences of growing up in Norway with parents from Pakistan. It is based upon various interviews with her, a short story authored by herself, as well as pictures she has taken and shared with us. Fatima’s thoughts and pictures reveal how feelings of inclusion and exclusion change over time and how they may relate to both parent’s migration story and one’s own sense of isolation or community. Read Fatima's story. 

Fatima's story is one of the three illustrative cases that are being published from the Norwegian research context of EUMARGINS.
