Foreword by Nordic Council of Ministers

Working to remove obstacles to crossborder freedom of movement has long been a priority for the Nordic countries, and a number of analyses and reports have addressed the issue. At their meeting in Punkaharju, Finland, in 2007 the Nordic prime ministers decided to adopt a more operational approach to the issue and set up the Nordic Freedom of Movement Forum. In addition to safeguarding the rights of Nordic citizens, the point of the co-operation is to support economic growth and improve the competitiveness of the Nordic countries.
