Analysis of Islam and immigration in Norwegian media

This new report from Integrerings- och mangfoldsdirektoratet (Directory of Integration and Multitude) show that Norwegian newspapers published 77 670 articles on the subject of Islam in 2009. Out of all articles written on immigrant issues 71 percent could be considered to hold a negative view. Immigrants are written about, but seldome listened to. Only in two percent of all articles published in Norway’s eight main newspapers, immigrants were interviewed and given a chance to talk for themselves. Predominantly immigration was presented as a problem, not as a resource.

The report is in Norwegian.
