About “The Foreigner”
The Foreigner is an online news and feature publication for critically thinking people who wish to know what is current in Norway.
It gives English-speakers an insight into what is going on before they can speak Norwegian.
The sparseness of foreigners working in the Norwegian media means bringing more diversity and plurality into the picture is especially important, as well as foreigners' issues as seen from a foreigner's point of view. Norway remains imperviously homogenous, despite its growing number of foreign labour migrants.
Since English is the main Internet language it gives a wider reach for Norwegian-related news.
