Norwegian citizens have too long tacitly accepted legalese, a language preventing understanding and participation. In our experience the process of changing the language in laws, can be compared to the long winters in Norway. The process is hard, snowy, slippery, but also fun and filled with speed and excitement. In this session you will meet two unorthodox bureaucrats who have willingly taken the mission of fighting the fog. In short, as we say in Norway, we have made snowballs roll. Our presentation is based on five years ofwork with the Clear Law Project in Central Government. We are delighted to share our experience in developing clarity in Norwegian laws. It's all about persistency, persuasion and transformation.
