Population survey: Attitudes towards Jews and Muslims in Norway 2017. Population survey and minority study
In the period 2015-2017 the Center for Studies of the Holocaust and Religious Minorities has conducted a follow-up of the population survey from 2012 Antisemitism in Norway? The Attitudes of the Norwegian Population towards Jews and Other Minorities (2012). Findings from the survey were published in December 2017.
About the project
The new survey contains an expanded section on attitudes towards Muslims. A separate survey maps attitudes and experiences among the Jewish and Muslim minority. The minority survey covers the same subjects as the population survey, but explores relations between Muslims and Jews, as well as experiences that the minorities have with living in Norway. In addition to the quantitative survey, the minority study is conducted through group interviews with Jews and Muslims.
The survey was commissioned by the Ministry of Children, Equality and Social Inclusion, Ministry of Justice and Public Security, Ministry of Local Government and Modernisation, Ministry of Education and Research, and Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The Project Group consisted of national and international experts on antisemitism and quantitative research: Christhard Hoffmann (Project leader), Claudia Lenz, Cora Alexa Døving, Vibeke Moe (Coordinator), Irene Levin, Werner Bergmann, Ottar Hellevik and Øivind Kopperud.
Data collection was undertaken by Kantar TNS between 11 January and 6 April 2017. The group interviews were conducted between May 2016 and May 2017.
