Wednesday la Brochmann-committee presented its report on how immigration affects the Norwegian welfare system.
Dagens Næringsliv writes that utvalgsmedlem Asle Toje, research director of the nobel institute, disagrees with the selection in several areas and that he put forward more their own notes to the report.
Background: – Immigration can threaten the support for the welfare state
– Australians will end up in the minority
He turns in one of the comments stated that ethnic norwegians will become the minority in the future if current immigration policy continues.
the Report’s projections assume that ethnic norwegians will not be in the minority. The report simply stipulates that immigration will decline, without explaining why or how, type Toje.
He confirms that there have been hefty discussions about this in the selection. Although he believes that the major asylankomstene in 2015, when it came 31.000 people of Norway, can be a new form of normality.
We live in a world where there are 7.5 billion people and where there are no signs that peace will descend. On the contrary, we see a resurgence of conflicts, ” he continues.
Toje also have very little faith in kvalifiseringslinjen the majority of the selection to settle on. It is unrealistic and too expensive, he believes. Norway should instead choose the asylum seekers from countries that can more easily integrate in the Norwegian society. He refers to Canada as a greater degree of “håndplukker” asylum seekers who get to come to the country.

committee chairman Grete Brochmann don’t understand how Toje may argue that norwegians will become a minority in the future.
I understand nothing of what he says. It is not the committee that has done these calculations. It is the SSB in its calculation is the reason, ” says Brochmann to ABC News.
Brochmann emphasizes that immigration is an additional challenge.
Immigration has modest effects for the public finances compared with the ageing population and the decline in oil income, ” says Brochmann.
