Nordic Studies in a Global Context

About the Series

This new book series aims to open up more empirical, critical and reflective perspectives on the Nordic cultures, institutions, legal frameworks and "models" in a global and comparative context and to create a bridge between humanistic Nordic studies and the comparative and IR-oriented social sciences and law programmes. It looks to encourage methodologically driven and critical reflection on the nature, construction and use of Nordic traditions, models, institutions, laws, discourses and images.

The series welcomes submissions from a broad range of disciplines across the social sciences, law and humanities. Works can be located within a single discipline but should have some relevance beyond; contributions with a policy dimension are also welcome.
