How can a society based on extensive welfare services and highly organized labor market system survive in situation where there is remarkable external and internal pressures towards it? These pressures, to name some, are for example global competition and climate change in external side and aging of population in the internal side.

The debate about the future prospects and strategies of Nordic models was based on the reports of the joint Nordic research project NordMod2030, with contributions by labour market and welfare researchers Jon Erik Dølvik and Tone Fløtten, State Secretary of the Minister of Education and Science Pilvi Torsti and professor Pauli Kettunen.
