Immigration and Immigrants 2014–2015

IMO Report for Norway

Report from Norway to the OECD.

Annually Norway sends a report to the OECD – Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. The report ”Immigration and Immigrants 2014-2015 – IMO Report for Norway” is a contribution to the reporting system on migration for the OECD countries.

The most recent report covers 2014 and to some extent 2015. It was prepared during the autumn of 2015 by the Ministry of Children, Equality and Social Inclusion, the Ministry of Justice and Public Security, the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs and the Ministry of Education and Research. It is mainly based on figures from Statistics Norway and the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration and contains statistics on migration and on the composition of immigrants and their Norwegian-born children.

It also presents an overview of immigration and integration policy principles and measures. The report covers the major types of immigration, integration in general, training, education, labour market issues, political participation, child welfare, discrimination, citizenship public debate and opinion. It also lists some relevant new publications in English or with a summary in English.

The report for Norway and similar reports from the other member countries are used as important input for the annual publication from the OECD, International Migration Outlook. See the OECD website on migration.
