image of Freedom of Movement within the Social and Labourmarket Area in the Nordic Countries

Removing barriers to mobility and encouraging crossborder freedom of movement have long been priorities for the Nordic countries. A series of analyses and reports have addressed the issue. In Punkaharju in 2007, the Nordic prime ministers decided that it was time for this work to enter into a more operational phase and they set up the Freedom of Movement Forum. In addition to safeguarding citizens' rights, work on this issue makes the Nordic countries more competitive and promotes economic growth.
