Proclaimed number of European countries policy of multiculturalism was really collapsed. Not only in Norway, but also throughout Europe born after the crisis of 2008, begin more and more actively operate the nationalistic movement directed against to migrants. Some people hold the view that migrants cannot be integrated into European society. There are many reasons for that: the difference of cultures and mentalities to differences in professional training and motivation. Then deeper the crisis, the more successful opponents of the policy of multiculturalism finds support in the community «titular nations»: the taxpayers are outraged that on the background of the budget deficit European countries pay social benefits to migrants, which they think is not willing to work, and do not consider it their duty to be grateful their host countries. Diasporas in turn radicalized and protrude with requirements to be inadmissible for the Europeans. The situation escalates extent that in a number of European countries of which we know only from the tolerance side, to victory in the elections came nationalists, seats in parliament get the extreme right parties. Leading European leaders are beginning to recognize the failure of the policy towards migrants, a few years ago declared one of the pillars of the ideology of a united Europe. What think the native population and migrants directly about the current situation? What is the output the opinions of representatives of these communities exist in this existing situation? And the most important question is: How to launch the mechanism of consolidation of society without irritating public indicator inside the particular state, taking into account the specifics of the regional mentality? In my project, I investigated these direction social communications between separate and frequently its different components. On amounts due to the implementation of the various stages of this project, I tried to pull out on the surface the people who are present to this day in the social field but remain invisible. I tried to attempt to make the invisible visible!
