Vi slår oss sammen med "From Welfare Net to Income Floor" (Betong)
Søndag 11.15 – 12.30
11.15 – 12.30 Parallel Sessions:
From Welfare Net to Income Floor (Betong)
Since its beginning the Nordic model has been praised and is often used in fine speeches as an explanation for the Nordic countries’ progress. In particular, they emphasize on distribution of income through taxes, central wage bargaining that results in wage compression and the universal character of the welfare state.
However, the Nordic model is under pressure. The public discourse on welfare is increasingly dominated by economic arguments, at the expense of rights-based arguments, for instance seen in the stricter criteria for social security schemes.
In this meeting we will ask our self what steps do we have to take in order to ensure universal, unconditional welfare for all in the future? How do we further develop the Nordic model to increase solidarity, sustainability and a sense of belonging?
