"Ladies and Gentlemen, here is Norway..."
Linkiesta, an Italian newspaper, published an article on 7 August 2011 showcasing various sectors of Norway, titled “Signore e signori, ecco a voi la Norvegia” (in Italian). On immigration policy, Associate Professor Katrine Fangen confirmed that Norwegian policy does not vary significantly from its neighbouring countries. As in many other European countries, Norway seeks to ensure limited and controlled immigration. As for multiculturalism, she explained that “although it is not an official policy of Norway, it has developed into an official strategy of integration. For example, mother tongue teaching in school, times reserved for Muslim women in swimming pools, and several other services geared towards successfully integration immigrants into Norwegian society.”
