Nordic perspectives on demography

A background report for the project on coastal societies and demography.

The initial focus of this working paper is on the challenges for the West Nordic area in meeting the on-going demographic changes. These challenges are not special for the West Nordic area. During much of the analysis the focus will thus be just as much on Norden as a whole, and with references to Europe, the Arctic and globally.

This working paper is part of Nordregio’s contribution to the project Coastal Societies and Demographic Challenges in the North Atlantic.
