Project Crossing Borders (Grensevandring)



Welcome to the Website for Interreg Project Crossing Borders (Grensevandring).

Since the early nineteenth century, nearly two million people have emigrated from Sweden and Norway to America. During the same period, thousands of Swedes crossed the border seeking employment in Norway. These two streams of migration are the basis of the project Crossing Borders. However migration is not a closed chapter. It continues today, and the present migration into Sweden and Norway has many parallels in the historical movement of our two countries.
