​NECORE is a research project that has brought together researchers from several academic fields and institutions to ask the question: ‘where do we go from here?’ after the tragedy that took place in Oslo and at Utøya on July 22, 2011. NECORE stands for “Negotiating Values: Collective Identities and Resilience after 22/7”. Through studies of individual and collective self-understandings, of the media, of the emergency response, and of values such as freedom, democracy, dialogue, and memory in the wake of the terrorist attacks, NECORE asks questions – and tries to provide some answers – about modern Norwegian society and its foundations.
