BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY : AFRO-NORWEGIAN ARE BLACK PEOPLE OF AFRICAN DESCENT FIREST AND SECOND GENERATION AFRO-NORWEGIAN :
BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY African immigration to Norway refers to immigrants to Norway from Africa. An estimated 88 764 people in Norway are either first or second generation immigrants from Africa.
Immigration from countries in Africa to Norway increased slightly from the end of the 1980s, but grew markedly from 2000 onwards. The increase is owed mainly to a rise in the number of immigrants from North and Northeast Africa, including Somalia (25,496), Morocco (8,058), Eritrea (5,789) and Ethiopia (5,156).
Compared to North and Northeast Africans, the percentage of Africans from other regions as a proportion of recent immigrants to Norway from Africa is relatively low.
Most other Africans in Norway come from West Africa, especially Ghana (2,034), Gambia (1,409) and Nigeria (1,247). There is also a sizeable population of Africans from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (2,050).
