Labour Markets in Finland and Sweden:
A Swedish Perspective
Per Skedinger

This is an English version of the article  ”Työmarkkinat Suomessa ja Ruotsissa – ruotsalainen näkökulma”, published in Talous & Yhteiskunta, no 2, 10–17, 2016, issued by the Labour Institute for Economic Research, Helsinki.

Labour market institutions in Finland and Sweden have many features in common. The many similarities have inspired a joint Finnish-Swedish research project on the effects of these institutions. Finland has experienced a prolonged economic downturn and Sweden’s system of wage bargaining has been suggested as a model for Finland. Aggregate wage formation has worked well in Sweden, but relative wage formation markedly less so and the effects of local bargaining are not clear.

Interdisciplinary European Studies

The European Union and the Return of the Nation State

9783030350048_200x_the-european-union-and-the-return-of-the-nation-state.jpg

This book explores the complex and ever-changing relationship between the European Union and its member states. The recent surge in tension in this relationship has been prompted by the actions of some member state governments as they question fundamental EU values and principles and refuse to implement common decisions seemingly on the basis of narrowly defined national interests.
