Least of all in Denmark, where Norway’s southern neighbour has also introduced a long line of initiatives meant to discourage would-be asylum seekers.

Following the presentation of Norway’s bill on Tuesday, several Danish parties that support the current Venstre minority government said Denmark should adopt some of the Norwegian approach.

Of particular interest to the Danish parties is a provision in the Norwegian bill allowing Norway to deny entry to all asylum seekers who do not come directly from countries in conflict in emergency situations.

The provision would only be implemented if the Norwegian government concludes that the European response to a new large influx of refugees “does not work”. PM Erna Solberg also previously said that the legislation could be implemented “in the event that it all breaks down”, pointing specifically to the strain on neighbouring Sweden, which took in 163,000 asylum seekers in 2015 and expects an additional 100,000 this year.
