The European understanding of the Nordic welfare model has often been simplified and over-optimistic. But the welfare regime has led to high levels economic competitiveness, social cohesion and well-being in all Nordic countries. Nevertheless, the recent developments in Nordic social policy – influenced by neo-liberal mainstream – have marked a shift towards a new mode of policy-making and new policy preferences. The time has come to assess this situation in a context of every country is looking for success models.
We organize this debate  on 29th February in the context of the launch of a new book “Rethinking Social Risks in the Nordics”, part of the Nordic Economies after the Crisis project, started by FEPS in 2010 with the support of the Finnish Kalevi Sorsa Foundation, Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, Joint Committee of the Nordic Social Democratic Labour Movement (SAMAK), Economic Council of the Labour Movement in Denmark and Swedish Arbetarrörelsens Tankesmedja.
