Are there poverty ghettos etc. in Norway?
Norway - begging is still allowed
Poverty is allowed to remain visible in the Norwegian streets. On February 5, 2015, the authorities stated that the
Begging bans in Europe
- In Hungary it is unconstitutional to sleep or beg in “tourist areas”. However, the Hungarian parliament has allowed the municipalities to set up their own zones for the homeless. Some newspapers are already talking about “new ghettos” - for example in Ocsa, around 40 kilometers south of Budapest.
- In France, the mayors have the power to monitor begging in their communities and to ban it temporarily (often on holidays or public holidays) or in certain neighborhoods.
- Begging has been officially banned in Denmark and Great Britain since 1824, but no prison sentence is imposed. Those who sleep in public places “only” have to expect a fine.
The bill to ban begging in public places will be withdrawn. The right-wing populist government had already come up with a whole range of punishments. The planned law provided for begging in public spaces to be punished with fines and - in the case of organized begging gangs - even with up to one year imprisonment. In order to justify the ban, Justice Minister Anders Anundsen (member of the Progress Party, which governs jointly with the Conservatives) did not shy away from associating begging with crime.
The Norwegian people reacted with outrage to the announced measures. In recent weeks, more and more internet users have been calling for civil disobedience on social networks. Some of the messages with which Twitter was literally showered were not without a certain irony - like that of @Steinklev: "In Norway it is better to fight the poor than to fight poverty!"And on the website of the Norwegian daily Verdens Gang, a reader even feared that charity could become a criminal offense:"At least the government could have been decent enough to make it clear in its bill that it does not want to ban everyday gestures of charity.“
In response to the debate, the opposition Center Party, which was originally involved in the project, no longer wants to support the draft law and thus deprive the government of the necessary parliamentary majority. Since 2014, thanks to a legislative text passed in parliament, cities have already had the opportunity to take action against beggars locally. Only the small town of Arendal in the south of the country is currently applying the measures.
