Nordic Model PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Nordic Model free pdf The articles in this book are all written by historians who have worked within the framework of a Nordic research project operating under the title 'The Nordic Welfare-Model'. As a work hypothesis, the concept Norden is regarded as a model with five exceptions. In this way, the authors make an attempt to trace both the common features and the differences between the Nordic welfare states. They do so by investigating the specific historical contexts in which the welfare systems were created. It has been the ambition to combine history and comparison. The analyses cover the core areas of the welfare state: old age pensions, health, the hospital-sector, family policies, unemployment insurance, the position of women, and the role of the Social Democratic parties. One article treats the question of how the Nordic welfare states were constructed through co-operation, comparison and competition between politician and civil servants. Another article focuses upon the role of the concept Nordic model in the international community and in the present discussions about the relationship between Norden, the European Union and globalisation. The Introduction, the Conclusion and most of the articles include discussions about the current problems of the Nordic model.
