Buy Country Review

For many years, it seemed as if nothing changed in Norway. You could leave the country for three months, travel the world, through coups d'etat, assassinations, famines, massacres and tsunamis, and come home to find that the only new thing in the newspapers was the crossword puzzle.

Overview: Norway

Although the attacks of July 22, 2011 had scarred Norwegians, the ability of Norwegians – including their politicians – to be straightforward in their dealings hadn't changed. Nor did the sense of trust that characterised Norwegian society appear to have been lost. There was no general hysteria in Norway over the issue of security. Amazingly, by North American standards, even after the Breivik murders no armed bodyguard was to be seen anywhere near Mr Stoltenberg. Norway had impressed the world, not only with its dignified mourning, but also because of the country's clear recognition of democracy and for the graceful way its people handled Breivik's trial and his outbursts in court. Norwegian opinion polls even indicated that the Norwegians' faith in democracy had grown since the attacks.
