The 7th Nordic Working Life Conference, Göteborg, Sweden, June 11-13 2014

Threats and Possibilities Facing Nordic Working Life

The “Nordic model” and Nordic working life is often seen as unitary and grounded in very similar social democratic welfare state models. During the past decades the Nordic states, management and work organizations have encountered challenges and undergone changes. The Nordic working life research community has a common interest to meet and discuss Nordic working life. In 2011 time was ripe for the first issue of the new Nordic Journal of Working Life Studies and in 2012 the Nordic Working Life Conference was reinstalled after a break of some 10 years. This year the NWLC is a joint venture with the Swedish Association for Working Life Research Forum för arbetslivsforskning FALF and its yearly conference. The conference offers a grand possibility for mutual inspiration and cooperation. By arranging the conference NWLC2014 we wish to create a forum for fellow researchers to discuss Threats and Possibilities Facing Nordic Working Life.
