National Plan of Action to Combat Racism and Discrimination (2002–2006)
The plan states that: It is particularly difficult for people who are discriminated against both on grounds of their beliefs, skin colour or ethnic or national background and on other grounds, such as gender, disability, illness or sexual orientation. In these cases, discrimination within a person’s community or family is an additional burden on top of the discrimination exercised by the majority community.

Action plan against forced marriages
In 1997 the Storting (Parliament) asked the then current government to make an action plan against forced marriages. The plan aims to prevent young people from being exposed to forced marriage and to provide better help and support to young people who are, or have been exposed to forced marriage.
