About Nordic iLibrary The Nordic co-operation is one of the world’s most extensive forms of regional collaboration, involving Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, the Faroe Islands, Greenland, and Åland. Nordic publications play a key role as the outcome of the many projects and activities fostered and financed by the Nordic co-operation. Being primarily research-based analyses the publications form the basis for political decisions in the Nordic co-operation. Every year around 100 new Nordic titles are published, approximately 65% of which are in English. They cover all the subjects that are part of the Nordic co-operation with particular focus on environmental studies, green growth, education, sustainable development, health and social welfare. Nordic iLibrary has been developed in partnership with OECD Publishing as part of the iLibrary Partnership. Discover more at...
