Nordic Journalist's Panel

At Scandinavia House, Nordic-U.S. journalists based in NYC join us for a conversation on the changing landscape of immigration policies in the United States and in their home countries. What trends do they see as journalists occurring in Scandinavia and in the U.S.? What challenges do they face, as foreign journalists, reporting in the U.S. compared to their own nations? What current programs and policies have changed and have been initiated in the past few years? What is the history behind these initiatives?

In this panel moderated by Sara Sundman, a panel of Nordic reporters will share their unique insight and stories into the current issues shaping immigration in America and Scandinavia.
