Voluntary Work in the Nordic Region – Societal Cohesion in a New Era

Available online: https://pub.norden.org/nord2020-031/ Abstract [en]: Voluntary work is important in itself, but it also creates cohesion and other important resources for society. In the Nordic region, voluntary work has also been a key feature in the democratic debate, and has been important for creating political inclusion. This report indicates that voluntary work in the Nordic region remains stable but, under the surface, structural changes are taking place that suggest that voluntary work and organisations are now finding a different role to the one they occupied previously.
