Cellini publishes article on the resettlement of Hungarian refugees to Norway and Sweden

In her newly published article The resettlement of Hungarians in 1956 in Forced Migration Review, Amanda Cellini (PRIO) compares the resettlement of Hungarian refugees to Norway and Sweden that began in 1956. The response for the nearly 200,000 Hungarian refugees in 1956 is considered one of the most successful demonstrations of international solidarity to find solutions to forced migration: nearly 180,000 Hungarians were resettled to 37 countries within three years. Comparing the experiences of Norway and Sweden in deciding to resettle refugees 60 years ago, Cellini finds echoes of current political deliberations. As the experiences of Sweden and Norway demonstrate, the years may pass but debates about solidarity and how best to respond to flows of refugees and asylum seekers appear to remain constant.
