Winter Symposium NSU Circle 1: Transformations in Welfare in the Nordic Countries

  • Gro Hellesdatter Jacobsen (Arrangør)

Aktivitet: Deltagelse i eller arrangement af en begivenhed - typerSeminar


In this study circle we study current transformations in welfare policies and citizens’ experiences of welfare in the Nordic countries under conditions of economic globalization and financial crisis. Theoretically we are inspired of the current developments of the welfare states, for instance that the welfare state is developing into a neo-liberal state, an active welfare state or a competition state. The sessions in the circle are organized as workshops each with a different theme related to transformations in welfare. The theme of this symposium is employment policies and socially marginalized youth and adults. Hence we welcome presentations in this field. The symposium will include a workshop with thematic discussions on these subjects building on reading of selected texts, as well as comparison of experiences from the participating Nordic countries. However there will also be limited space for presentations on other topics related to welfare policies.
