Nordic responses to rising inequalities: still pursuing a distinct path or joining the rest?
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Centre for Health Equity Studies (CHESS).
2012 (English)In: Changing Social Equality: The Nordic welfare model in the 21st century / [ed] Jon Kvist, Johan Fritzell, Bjørn Hvinden, Olli Kangas, Bristol: Policy Press, 2012, p. 201-205Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Whether the Nordic countries have stemmed the international tide of inequality better, worse or merely different from other Western countries is the question addressed in this final chapter. Applying the results of the analysis in the previous chapters, this chapter prepares trends across different aspects of inequality and the Nordic welfare model. The findings point towards a complex transformation of the Nordic welfare model. The overall aim of motivating individuals and helping them find work, form families and excel in society may be intact. However, the mix of policies has become ambiguous in relation to the aims of promoting individuals' agency and protecting their level of living outside work. At the same time, rewarding employment is becoming more dominant.
