  • Narratives of Uniformity and Diversity

    The Nordic societies are more complex than indicated by the one-sided endorsements and collective praise. In many areas, the experiences of the five countries differ widely, and Nordic responses to global challenges are full of ambiguities and paradoxes.

    NordForsk has awarded approximately €4.3 million in funding to the Reimagining Norden in an Evolving World (ReNEW) research consortium. The consortium that brings together UiO and five other universities is led by the Centre for Nordic Studies CENS at the University of Helsinki.
