The recruits: Norway needs you!

Norway needs you! If you’re Dutch, that is…The country is actively recruiting new settlers to combat a declining population. The Dutch come top of the wish list: hard-working, innovative, gifted with language skills. But are Dutch people really prepared to adapt? “The recruits” follows several families finding out what it means to be a foreigner…and illuminates the flip side of the integration debate.
