The global voice of the Nordic Region

According to the Secretary-General of the UN, Ban Ki-moon, the countries of the Nordic Region are the strongest countries in the UN’s 70-year history. “This is a fact that commands respect and strengthens you as a region,” he said. The individuals in this book, all of whom are active in various international arenas, are testament to the great interest in the Nordic Region and the fact that the global Nordic voice is now perhaps more important than ever.



In the spirit of Nordic pragmatism

Britt Bohlin is a relative newcomer as the Director of the Nordic Council. From day one her mantra has been “Revitalise the council with more pinpointed debates and sharper policies.” Now she is unable to hide a certain unease about the current situation. When we meet there’s just one week left until the Session - the large annual meeting of the Nordic co-operation - and the northward flow of refugees in Europe has changed the whole agenda. During this difficult period she hopes that the climate for debate will be one of moderation and balance.
