Due to events occurring in the early 90’s, and mid-2000’s, there has been a large out migration of Somalians into European countries and beyond. The continuation of violence enabled the refugees to stay considerably longer than host countries expected. One of these countries is Norway. According to a news article dated September 15, 2018, from Norway Today, Norway is planning strip 1, 600 migrants of their refugee status. Some sources believe this is unfair treatment of the Somalians, others believe that Norway’s citizens safety and security, and its welfare system depend on the migrants leaving Norway.
In 2006, Somali, a country torn apart by warring militias and civil unrest, was invaded by its neighbor Ethiopia. In this unstable environment of constant conflict, an Al-Qaida affiliated threat group emerged, Al-Shabab. Originating in 2006, Al-Shabab which means youngster in Arabic, began as a militia to support the Islamic Courts Union (ICU). The ICU was controlled by a powerful warlord whose militias had positive control over most of Southern Somalia. In 2006, Ethiopia sent troops into Somalia to establish a Transitional Federal Government (TFG) whose mission was to oust warlords and set up an organized form of government. By 2008, the TFG had gained control of Southern Somalia, but Al-Shabab took it back in 2009. This cycle has repeated itself several times, making life perilous for the country’s inhabitants. Since 2006, refugees have been pouring into Europe from Somalia. While the UK seems to be the destination of the bulk of Somalian refugees, at 250,000, other smaller countries have taken in refugees during the conflicts that have produced widespread violence and destruction.
