Proposal to Name Some Streets in Turkish Divides Community in Norway

04 Mar 2019  |  euronews
In Drammen, Norway, home to a dense Turkish population, a proposal by Turkish residents to name some streets with Turkish names such as 'Mevlana Yolu' and 'Küçük Anadolu' has sparked nationwide debate, dividing public opinion. The Turkish association believes that the street name changes would contribute to better relations between the Turkish community and the locals, especially as the 50th anniversary of Turkish worker migration approaches. The proposal has faced harsh criticism from far-right groups and negative comments on websites like Rights.no and Document. Former Mayor Lise Christoffersen supports the proposal, emphasizing the positive contributions of immigrants. Priest Signe Myklebust also expressed a positive view of multiculturalism. The final decision on the street name changes will be made by the Drammen City Council.

The number of Turks seeking asylum in Norway surpasses Syrians

22 Jan 2019  |  euronews
Turkish citizens have become the largest group seeking asylum in Norway, surpassing Syrians, according to the latest annual asylum report by Norway's foreign police (UDI). In 2018, 3 out of every 10 asylum seekers in Norway were Turkish. The increase in Turkish applications has led UDI to announce a pause in June 2017 to carefully review the content of the files. Despite a general decrease in asylum applications in Norway, there has been a significant increase in applications from Turkish citizens, particularly following the July 15 coup attempt in Turkey. Of the completed applications, 91% resulted in a positive outcome, granting residency to the applicants. In 2018, 765 Turkish citizens applied for asylum, compared to 419 Syrians, 241 Eritreans, and 119 Iranians. The highest number of applications from Turkish citizens occurred in June.
