Catching up with new norwegians, 25 years on | al jazeera world documentary

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Catching up with new Norwegians, 25 years on | Al Jazeera World Documentary” – below is their description.

In 1996, a group of young people living in Norway were interviewed about what is meant to be Norwegian.

They came from diverse backgrounds – mainly from countries in Africa and Asia – and what united them was that they all lived in Norway and spoke Norwegian.

Twenty-five years later, this film tracks them down to discover how a quarter-century of living in Scandinavia has shaped their lives.

The individual stories tell much about what it means to be Norwegian, particularly for those first- and second-generation arrivals.
