Nordic approach to growth and welfare: European lessons to be learned?
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Economic History.

Abstract [en]

The EU’s Lisbon Strategy, adopted in 2000, set ambitious goals, a roadmap for achieving them and quantitative targets for 2010. Despite the view in some quarters just a few years ago that the Nordic countries were neither sustainable nor competitive, these countries have subsequently risen to become some of Europe’s most consistent performers in the efforts to reach the Lisbon targets. The intention of this book is to document how good governance has been developed in the Nordic countries. It proposes some relevant lessons for European decision-makers while highlighting individual features of the countries in the Nordic region.
