About: NRC promotes and protects the rights of people who have been forced to flee their countries, or their homes within their countries. It is the only Norwegian organisation that specialises in international efforts aimed at this target group.

The majority of our approximately 2000 staff members are national employees in NRC’s projects in around 20 countries in Africa, Asia, America and Europe. All our projects are run from a small and efficient administration in Oslo.
