UiO:Nordic seeks to promote new and relevant knowledge about the Nordic Region and the Nordic in an international context.

UiO:Nordic aims to explore:

Nordic countries in the world

Comparisons and contrasts between the Nordic countries, between the Nordic region and other countries and regions, and between institutions, practices and cultural expressions within these countries.

Nordic models, styles and traditions

How Nordic characteristics are constituted, discussed, utilized and criticized within various social, cultural and aesthetic areas.

History and preconditions

Historical commonalities, differences and preconditions in today's Nordic communities.

Sustainability and future opportunities

Political, economic and cultural globalization, migration, Europeanization and standardization present influences and challenges. Countries' development and opportunities are not just about identifying problems and challenges, but also about studying shortfalls, solutions, adaptations and learning – across countries, regions and sectors.
