About the Nordic welfare model

Unlike the rest of Europe, the Nordic societies are based on a common set of basic values. They may not all approach welfare provision in exactly the same way, but the similarities between the countries are sufficient to constitute a recognisable “Nordic welfare model”. The countries also face the same challenges in the future. Nordic co-operation facilitates the sharing of experiences across national borders and contributes to social innovation in the Region.
