Norwegian UN junior professionals

Commissioned by Norec, this project examines factors that can induce a higher proportion of Norwegian Junior Professional Officers (JPOs) to remain employed in the UN when their JPO assignments end. The project builds mainly on information from 7 key informants, in-depth interviews with 11 former and 2 current JPOs, and a questionnaire survey disseminated to 127 former and current JPOs. Data were collected in the second half of 2022. The project resulted in a Fafo report and a Fafo paper, which summarises the findings of the report.
