How Norway Has Been Successful at Mitigating Racism

By 
(0 votes)

Despite facing a surge of xenophobia and racist sentiments, Norway has countered its racial problems with significantly more success than we have here in the U.S.

 

Although there has been a rise in bigotry in Norwegian culture, immigrants and people of color have still seen “positive trends in job advancement, entry into universities, and acceptance in Norwegian institutions, even in leadership positions.”

 

How is this possible? What makes Norway so effective at combating racism? Put simply, the Norwegian government has used governmental policies to combat the most systemic manifestations of racism. The Scandinavian country has elevated people of color into high-ranking, high-visibility positions, dispersed immigrants into a variety of cities instead of cramming them into a single ghetto, and economically empowered them with social programs like universal healthcare, universal public college, subsidized housing, and affordable mass transit.

 

We must advocate for the change we need to combat racism and state violence. You can help by Joining our Coalition of Supporters, or by donating here.

 

The takeaway is clear: building economic justice for people of color is one of the most effective ways to mitigate racism. It is vital that the United States takes a page out of Norway’s book.
