A key debate in the 1980s and 1990s revolves around the growing power of globalization and, in the European context, Europeanization. Denmark, Norway and Sweden lie at the heart of the debate over whether the end of the nation-state has arrived or if national distinctions remain paramount. This volume answers the question of whether or not we are witnessing the end of the social democratic era by exploring the development of Scandinavian economic policy and welfare state/social policy.
