Most asylum seekers in Norway have good reasons to seek protection
– also those whose applications are rejected
So You Think You Can Stay is a campaign from the Norwegian Organisation for Asylum Seekers (NOAS). We wish to tell the stories of some of the people who flee to Norway. The film has been made pro bono for NOAS by Fantefilm.
So You Think You Can Stay gives a face to a group of people who often receive negative media attention: Rejected asylum seekers. We wish to show that also most people in this category have good reasons to leave their home country and seek protection in Norway. Norwegian asylum policy is strict and many people are rejected in contradiction with UNHCR’s recommendations.
The stories of the contestants are based on real asylum cases that NOAS engages in through legal aid. Asylum seekers in Norway are rejected for the same reasons as the contestants in So You Think You Can Stay.
NOAS works for granting protection to those who need it.
