Norway is widely perceived by other nations as a successful example of how gender equality principles can be incorporated into, and practiced by, a society. However, we learned that Norway also continues to face difficulties harmonizing gender equality, with the realities of discrimination. 

Eero Olli, a political scientist and analyst with the Equality and Anti-discrimination Ombudsman, provided a historical overview of ethnic minorities and indigenous people of today's Norway, and the key political developments that have shaped public attitudes and policies regarding their communities.

These social challenges were explored in more detail through a panel discussion and open dialogue with Roma and Romani women, and organizations advocating for their rights. We heard remarks from Monica Karlsen, Lillan Støen, Linda Aleksandersen, Sunita Lakatosova, Safira Josef, Diemanta Johnsen, and Inger Sigfridsson from the Roma Initiative of Oslo Municipality (see photo).
