In this report, EAPN Norway presents the latest statistics on poverty in Norway, along with their assessments of the development of poverty in the country. The cost of living crisis has influenced the development of poverty in the country, and this year’s report therefore includes a discussion of how it has affected people living in poverty.
This report represents an indispensable tool for shedding light on the escalating issue of poverty in Norway. The concern grows in tandem with the widening economic gap the rich and people living in poverty. This imbalance creates significant hurdles for those already living in challenging conditions. The situation is particularly worrying for those born into poverty, as they now face severely limited opportunities to improve their economic situation. Growing inequality threatens the very foundation of the Norwegian welfare system, which is based on principles of inclusion and equal opportunities for all citizens.
Therefore, this report is not just a necessity; it is an alarm bell that demands our immediate and continuous attention to preserve justice and inclusion in our society.
