Brandon Arthur Baumbach, '11, MPP in Public Policy, will research the Norwegian government's national immigration policy with the Somali population being the specific case study. As a strong social welfare country, Norwegian policies that affect the Somali Diaspora in Norway will provide for a strong comparison with the immigration policies of the United States affecting the American Somali Diaspora. This research will comment on a best practices model concerning Somali immigration today. Baumbach graduated with a B.A. in Global Studies from the University of Minnesota in 2010.
