The session focuses on the current development and perspectives for the future development looking into the development in the single Nordic countries in order to identify and analyze similarities and differences in the economic and political approaches to EU and globalization issues as seen in law changes and political debate. Especially the consequences of reducing the number of municipalities and the decision on placing state jobs outside the capital will be looked into. How can the changes in centralization and decentralization impact people living rural areas and their options? What are the benefits and what is the cost?
The purpose is to achieve knowledge and learning on the ongoing changes in rural living conditions in the rural areas by comparison of the development in the Nordic countries and by identifying instruments to easy survival of living in the rural areas in a sustainable way including economic, social and environmental dimensions
Presentations followed by a round table discussion
