Towards sustainable working life in the Nordic countries

Changing conditions in Nordic countries’ labour markets, including new forms of employment and working conditions, changes in the Nordic model and a greater responsibility for providing care to an ageing population, are impacting, among other things, skills supply needs and the relationship between supply and demand for labour. Gender segregation within education systems and in the labour market, the gendered division of labour, and the traditionally unequal responsibility for care between genders all make it essential to highlight these issues from the gender dimension.  

NIKK has previously raised these issues, among other things as part of the initiative to shed light on demographic trends in the Nordic countries. This project will be a continuation of this long-term priority, and will result in a knowledge base to be published in 2022.
