Course objectives / learning outcome
From Washington to Shanghai, the Nordic Welfare State is a renowned model of society. Sometimes for better, sometimes for worse, the international interest seems to be intact and growing. Nordic societies are generally seen as living proof of the possibility of stable democracies, the combination of economic success and social rights, the realization (at least partially) of social inclusion and gender equality, and the successful combat of poverty. This is pointed out by numerous international studies and rankings where the Nordic countries are almost always in the top-10. However, taking a closer look at the debates and nature of the actual use of the model reveals quite different understandings and uses of the Nordic model. It might refer to a variety of topics (from welfare over gender equality to efficient growth models), it can be positive (utopic) or negative (dystopic), and it changes over time. But how and why has it attracted so much interest?
