Conference: Nordic welfare research

How can the welfare society survive and develop? Does “the Nordic welfare model” really exist? If yes, is it a prerequisite for, or a threat to, the competitiveness of the Nordic countries?
These are some of the themes for the closing conference of the Nordic welfare research programme.

The Nordic Council of Ministers has since 2001 funded a research programme on welfare politics in the Nordic countries. The research programme is about to end, and the closing conference will take place 11 May in Oslo.

Joakim Palme, director of the Institute for future studies will summarize the 15 research projects in the programme. The researchers Kåre Hagen, Jon Kvist, Marta Szebehely and Oddbjørn Raaum will discuss Nordic welfare politics on the background of the research reports.
