Gender, Education and Population Flows

Summary report on knowledge, cross-Nordic experiences and examples from practice

image of Gender, Education and Population Flows

During the Danish Presidency for the Nordic Council of Ministers in 2015, attention was drawn towards challenges and best practice examples in relation to gender, education and population flows in peripheral areas throughout the Nordic countries - Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Iceland and the autonomous countries, Greenland, the Faroe Islands and Åland. The present report summarises the findings and conclusions which are covered in the existing Nordic research and literature within the field, as well as the experience and professional responses, which were presented during the course of the common dialogue and exchange of experience.



Similarities and differences among the Nordic countries

As stated in the previous section on facts and figures, there are a number of relevant similarities across the Nordic region, which makes it beneficial to share common experiences and engage in comparative discussions. The challenges facing the Nordic Region in relation to peripheral areas and in relation to gender, education and population flows have many dimensions – both at an individual, group and community level, and in the interaction between the levels. The relevant similarities across the different Nordic areas are reflected in the educational system, on the labour market and generally in the local communities in the Nordic peripheral areas.
