Time and again we find Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, with their 25 million inhabitants, on the lists of the world’s best countries to live in. You, living outside the Nordics, may wonder: Have the Nordics really performed that well? How do you make your Nordic Model fly? Can we clone it back home? The note The Nordic Model for Dummies tries to give you some answers.
The Nordic Model for Dummies is based on the NordMod2030 research project, undertaken by the Fafo Institute for Labour and Science Research and a Nordic research team for SAMAK and Foundation for European Progressive Studies FEPS.
