This is a posting from a student who was not able to post on a blog.
Multiculturalism is defined as “The existence, recognition, or preservation of different cultures or cultural identities within a unified society.” In Norway we do have a multicultural society, or at least we would like to think we do. In my opinion, I think it varies how multicultural the societies are depending where in Norway you are situated. Some cities, like Oslo, have a quite segregated multicultural society, where the ethnic Norwegians often live on the ”west side” and the immigrants often live on the ”east side”.
However, this doesn’t define multiculturalism in the whole of Norway. In smaller cities, multiculturalism could be considered to be nearer the original definition; where people with different cultures live in a society where there’s no sides that separate different races and who is rich or poor.
Personally, I think Norway has a well-working multicultural society, but could be improved in e.g. larger cities.
Strangely enough, the poorest continue to vote for the richest – despite the fact that it is against their own interests…:)
