We just told you about Denmark a few minutes ago, now here is more news from Scandinavia….
From The Foreigner:
A growing number of Somali immigrants are feeling humiliated by The Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV), a new report shows.
Independent research foundation Fafo’s study (in Norwegian) NAV’s treatment of this group has a negative effect on their trust in institutions and experience of inclusive Norwegian citizenship.
NAV employees have explained that the major problem of getting Somalis into the job market is their lack of education and language skills.
According to some NAV workers, Somali immigrants are particularly demanding and reluctant compared to other groups.
“Many Somalis are lacking very basic training in the form of language, for example. Therefore, they feel that NAVs more work-oriented initiatives are worthless,” Fafo researcher John Horgen Friberg told NRK.
Holy cow! Norway has taken in 33,000 Somalis!
State collapse and civil war has led to that many Somalis lack basic education. It has also worked to diminish their trust in governmental institutions.
This collapse of the Somali state in 1991 led an influx of Somali immigrants to Norway. Some 33,000 emigrated to the Scandinavian country between 1990 to 2013.
Of course it is all the fault of the government agency! You might want to revisit a post we wrote in December 2013 about a report George Soros Open Society produced on Somalis not adjusting in Norway (all the government’s fault too).
