The Nordic Council of Ministers has initiated a research-based feasibility study in order to highlight the knowledge gaps on sexual harassment in working life and to make proposals on how to address it. NIKK has been commissioned to conduct the feasibility study, which will be completed in March 2020.
For the 25th anniversary of the UN Action Plan of Beijing in 1995 on gender equality, the Danish Presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers will make Nordic young people’s perspectives on global equality issues visible together in a campaign with UN Women. NIKK has been commissioned to develop and implement the Nordic sub-campaign #GenerationEqualityNordic, as part of the Danish Presidency’s project Young people, Beijing + 25 and the future gender equality policy.
In 2020, a new formal Nordic cooperation on equal treatment and rights for LGBTI people will be launched. In order for the collaboration to be accurate, effective and long-term, NIKK was commissioned by the Nordic Council of Ministers to carry out a survey and analysis of the LGBTI area.
NIKK’s project “Young women and men, vulnerability and prostitution” aimed to compile and analyse the available knowledge about young people with experience of offering sex for money in all Nordic countries.
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.
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.
This project aimed to spread Nordic experiences related to environmental management, gender equality and social welfare in order to contribute to global sustainable development. The Nordic Council of Ministers, which coordinated the initiative, asked NIKK to serve as a cooperation partner in the area of gender equality.
During 2018, NIKK was tasked by the Swedish Presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers with producing a body of material that would visualise the differences in the social conditions governing the lives of women and men in sparsely populated areas and how these differences are affecting migration patterns in the Nordic countries.
The aim of the project was to contribute to knowledge-based work against gender-related online hate speech, threats and other violations by analysing the applicable legislations in the Nordic countries and present the findings in a report. The report also contributed to conceptual clarity by delimiting and defining the concepts that in a Nordic context are central in the area.
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.
