Case files are those matters which are discussed in Nordic co-operation. There are different types of cases. These can be, for example, proposals from parliamentarians or the Council of Ministers, action plans or statements on proposals.
The parliamentarians' decisions on implementation of a proposal are called council recommendations. The council of ministers for the different policy areas are charged with finding a way of implementing these recommendations. Internal decisions are directed to their own area.
Parliamentarians can also pose questions, both written and oral (at the session) to an individual Nordic government, to several governments or to the Council of Ministers.
