NIKK was during the autumn of 2018 assigned by the Nordic Council of Ministers to map Nordic and Baltic actions and initiatives taken against sexual harassments in the wake of the #MeToo movement. The mapping focused on stricter laws, political policies, elucidated official mandates, as well as training and enquiries to prevent sexual harassments.
How to stop the online violence is a hot topic in all Nordic countries. The epidemic of threats and sexist remarks in website comment fields is a serious democracy problem, as it may silence voices in the public space. Nordic Information on Gender (NIKK) therefore conducted a review of the legal regulation of online hate speech at the request of the Nordic Council of Ministers.
In May 2015, Nordic Information on Gender was commissioned by the Nordic Council of Ministers to carry out a project on men and gender equality in the Nordic countries. NIKK made a review of present and past work in the area of men and gender equality at Nordic and national level during the period 2005–2015. A final report was presented to the Nordic working group on men and gender equality in January 2016.
Against the background of the Nordic programme for gender equality cooperation, in 2013 the Nordic Council of Ministers commissioned Nordic Information on Gender (NIKK) to investigate the issue of part-time work in the Nordic region.
The aim of the project was to provide policymakers and the labour market parties with research-based information that can be used to promote gender equality in the labour market.
