Immigrant inclusion in Norway: An analysis of immigrant adaption and native reaction

This project views integration as a two-way process. Inclusion is not only a question of how immigrants adapt, but also how natives react. With regard to immigrant adaption we are concerned with the effects of policy tools to improve inclusion, and how characteristics of 1) the immigrants themselves, 2) their country of origin, and 3) the local community in which they settle affect political and economic incorporation. The project is divided into four interrelated work packages. WP1 introduces Get-Out-the-Vote (GOTV) mobilization campaigns as a new and potential important tool to foster immigrants inclusion in Norway. WP2 scrutinizes the effects of existing policy tools for the inclusion of newly arrived immigrants: early access to voting rights, the two-year introductory program for refugees and the effect of placement policies in terms of spatial concentration of co-ethnics. WP3 is a study of whether inclusion of immigrants depends on who they are, where they come from or where they live in Norway. Finally, WP4 studies the influence of immigration and their integration on both citizens' attitudes towards welfare recipients and the welfare state. Is unsuccessful integration detrimental to the support for the welfare state as such?
