In this new series, speakers at Scandinavia House will explore the reasons why Nordic countries lead surveys of societies with high levels of trust, happiness, gender equality, and quality of life. By many measures, these countries are among the most successful societies worldwide. In these lectures, we’ll look at how individual countries have successfully addressed certain issues that confront all societies.

Sweden is known for its top-ranking work-life balance. The series will continue this month with a discussion on Sweden’s successful balancing of high wages, regulated markets, and generous welfare, moderated by ASF Chairman Steven B. Peri.

Panelists and more details will be released closer to the date; please check back for more information.
