Migration flows by country of origin are of growing interest in the Nordic Region due to the recent unprecedented in-flows of migrants.  There are also interesting differences between the Nordic countries with respect to the dominant countries of origin of migrants and the size of inflows.

The majority of immigrants to Norway during the 1990s came from Sweden. Other major immigration flows during the decade, were from Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia and Montenegro, a specific consequence of the wars in the Balkan Region during the 1990s.
