The Norwegian Government appointed a committee in august 2009 to provide more knowledge about how the Norwegian welfare model works in a time of increased immigration and emigration. The Committee presented its report and their conclusions regarding the future of the Norwegian welfare model in relation to immigration on the 10th of May 2011. The MiRA Centre views the rapport as an important contribution in the formation of future policies regarding immigration and integration, but do, at the same time, worry about the way women with ethnic minority background are portrayed in the rapport and consider some of the suggested solutions to be injurious to the rights of women.

From Friday afternoon until late Sunday evening this year’s Mela Festival was full of live at Rådhusplassen in Oslo. At The MiRA Centre’s tent this year, there was an information stand, a photo exhibit, free henna painting for children and quizzes in addition to many of our publications on sale.
In association with this years empowerment activities, The MiRA Centre recently held a photo workshop for young girls entitled ”Identity is my strength”. Minority women and young girls in our network individually took photos and created picture series which they felt expressed their individual and unique identities. We are proud of the beautiful and creative pictures that were shown at this year’s Mela Festival. The exhibition, like the workshop, was called “Identity is my strength”.
Recently the Norwegian Equality and Anti-Discrimination Ombud Sunniva Ørstavik visited the MiRA Centre. During her visit she made it clear that she intends to reach out to women with the ethnic minority backgrounds and provide them with information about the anti-discrimination law and the role of the Ombud office.
