This qualitative study suggests that the Turkish people established their diasporic group soon after their first arrival to Norway. In the beginning, there was a small number of Turks in Norway, so they could come together under one agenda and act in unison. However, following the increase in their population, their character became as heterogeneous as the population in Turkey. In other words, there became a rich diversity among the members. Despite the heterogeneity in the Turkish community in Norway they have been able to come together during certain circumstances. Therefore, from a constructivist point of view, they have influenced the Norwegian politics through identity making with the help of organizations, creating awareness through demonstrations and exerted influence via the usage the media.
