Refugees who settle in Norwegian municipalities have different basis for integration. This has consequences for how Norwegian authorities and local actors best can contribute to ensuring that the path to an active life in Norway is as efficient as possible.

The aim of this project is to identify methods and integration measures that work for different groups. A key question is how the integration programs can best be adapted to the changing composition of refugee groups arriving in Norway.

For example, refugees from Ukraine may require different integration programs than resettled UN-refugees, or refugees who have successfully applied for asylum. In recent years, resettled refugees have been more numerous than the latter category.

In this study, we look at how national authorities, municipalities and other actors facilitate local integration. We use survey methodology to provide an overview of types of measures and adaptations in the municipalities, do interviews in five case municipalities, additional interviews with national authorities, and with individual refugees. This data material is supplemented with available statistics and register data.
