Emigration from today’s Norway: Who, why, and how does it shape Norwegian society? (EXITNORWAY)

Little is known about those who emigrate from Norway today, why they leave, and how their emigration affects Norwegian society.

About the project

Annually, around 30,000 persons emigrate from Norway. This is nearly as much as the annual number of deaths (ca 40,000). However, little is known about those who emigrate from Norway today, why they leave, and how their emigration affects Norwegian society.

EXITNORWAY will provide insights into a phenomenon which annually removes thousands of relatively young residents from the Norwegian society, which in turn may affect skill shortages, population ageing as well as economic and regional inequalities.
