International Organization for Migration

Migration for the benefit of all

Cross-Cultural Facilitators

The pedagogical base of the CO programme are Cross-Cultural Facilitators. A Cross-Cultural Facilitator is a person who has an origin or background similar to the refugee group in question and who also has a solid  background and living experience in Norway. He or she speaks the language of the CO participants thus eliminating the need for an interpreter. Similar ethnic and immigrant/refugee background and ability to speak the same language as the refugees facilitates creation of trusting and open atmosphere in the  class room. A Cross-Cultural Facilitator also acts as a role model for refugees as the facilitator him/herself has gone successfully through the integration process in Norway, learned the language and has also managed to professionally establish him/herself in Norway.
