High season for forced marriages
Several young Norwegians from ethnic minorities that go on vacation to their home countries in the summer, are forced into marriage by their families.
Often the marriage is to ensure that the spouse is granted a Norwegian residence permit.
Since 2004 and up until 2012, the Directorate of Integration and Diversity (IMDi) has registered 2,300 persons who have requested assistance after experiencing pressure, threats and violence in connection with forced marriages.
