The Nordic Seminar: The Nordic model as a development strategy

Can a model that works well for affluent homogeneous Nordic societies be applied as a development strategy in poor and heterogeneous countries?

The Nordic countries are today among the richest countries in the world and many would agree that they manage to combine high productivity with an equitable distribution of resources. This has led both scholars and politicians to turn to the Nordic model for insight into how present day poor countries could develop. But can a model that works well for affluent homogeneous Nordic societies be applied as a development strategy in poor and heterogeneous countries? This is the question we want to highlight in this seminar.

 

Program:

Kalle Moene (Professor, UiO): What can poor countries learn from the Nordic model?

Andreas Kotsadam (Senior researcher, Frisch centre): Nordic minds in African mines. Development lessons from mining areas.

 
This event is a part of the seminar series Norden-seminaret, hosted by UiO:Nordic.
