Abstract [en]

Globally, the five countries of the Nordic region – Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden – are known to be among the most gender equal societies. However, gender segregation in labour market and education are persistent, and gender inequalities in academia and research show many patterns similar to elsewhere. Noteworthy for the region is a long tradition of Nordic regional collaboration through inter-governmental and inter-parliamentary organisations, as well as in research and non-governmental organisations; this has had a significant impact on the development of gender equality, gender research and Gender Studies on both regional and national levels.
