Public Affairs Section

The Public Affairs Section  works to promote people-to-people ties between the United States and Norway. We advocate and explain U.S. policies and culture to the Norwegian public. In addition the Section manages media relations, encourages educational and professional exchange among Norwegians and Americans, and supports the work of our bilateral Fulbright Commission to strengthen educational links between the U.S. and Norway.
