Migrants from Romania, Bulgaria, Estonia and Lithuania in Norway
What kind of information do labour immigrants need when they go to Norway to work or do business?
Part-time work in hospitals
In this project we will investigate weaknesses and strengths of three measures that aim to recruit more nurses (and health care workers) to full-time positions in hospitals.
Measures for permanent employment - summary and review of research
The project consists of a summary and review of research from Europa and Canada, where we study public measures improving the long-term connection to the labor market for immigrants.
The freight transport market
Fafo will, in collaboration with Economics Norway, map the scope and characteristics of the freight market (payload below 3.5 tonnes). The survey covers the competitive situation between the truck market and the regulated freight transport market.
Working conditions for employees with LBGT identity in the Church of Norway
The aim of this study is to discuss whether employees with LGBT background in the Church of Norway are exposed to special challenges in the performance of their professions.
Shop steward training
The project will investigate how shop stewards develop competence through their position. It is about both the competence gained through participation in various courses under the auspices of the trade union movement, and about the informal learning that happens through being elected.
Diversity in the Norwegian film industry
On behalf of the Norwegian Film Institute, Fafo will investigate under-representation in the Norwegian film industry. In this project we will give special attention to people with minority background (indigenous peoples and ethnic minorities) who works as directors or with script.
Competence measures and long-term sick leave
On behalf of the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV,) Fafo will carry out a preliminary project to investigate if competence measures targeting persons with long-term sick leave can enhance job mobility. The purpose of the project is to develop a status of knowledge and a mapping tool, as well as to collect information about the potential target group. Five test counties will participate.
Franchise and corporate groups
In this project we will compare the operating modes of franchise and corporate groups, in order to elaborate legal and practical consequences for the employees. The point of departure is that companies other than the employer can indirectly control the work-organisation.
Radiographs and work intensity
In this project, we will investigate the labor intensity and pressure among radiographers and whether these factors are perceived to have increased in recent years.
Knowledge of the Norwegian language among migrant workers
What kind of language training needs have workers born abroad? And what kind of offers are given?
Working and living conditions for migrants from Poland and Lithuania

We will conduct a nationwide survey among migrant workers from Poland and Lithuania, living in Norway.

Young people in deprived city living areas

This project takes as its starting point young persons’ own experiences as it explores which factors that support or hinder social inclusion of young persons with immigration backgrounds growing up in deprived city areas.

Competence mapping and career guidance

The project examines how early competence mapping and career guidance, two recently introduced measures, can help recently settled refugees make more targeted qualification and career choices, and help municipalities to better adapt their services to refugees.
