Nordic Christmas Party

On 14th December, Nordic, Chinese and international students came to Nordic Centre to celebrate a traditional Nordic Christmas. Co-organized with Association for Norwegian Students Abroad, ANSA, we opened our doors for a Nordic Christmas celebration where glogg, lusekattar, cinnamon rolls and ginger breads were served.

The highlight of the evening was when Santa Claus came and delivered out a present to those who had brought one to the party. Some had wrapped up a box of chocolate and went home with a hand cream. After Santa had emptied his bags, he made the participants sing carols where the last song was Wham’s classic, Last Christmas. With over 150 people present at the event, the building was shaking when everyone sang together.

ANSA and Nordic Centre wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Gender Equality: Politics & Policies in the Nordic countries
1:00 PM13:00

Gender Equality: Politics & Policies in the Nordic countries

gender-workshop_29298243 (2).png

Four public lectures on gender-themed topics. It is possible to attend individual lectures.

Descriptions of the presentations:

Hanne Marlene Dahl: Elderly care in the Nordic welfare states in neo-liberal times
The Nordic welfare states (NWS) and their model of elderly care provision will be introduced, as well as its relationship to state feminism and how transnational discourses on neo-liberalism have been translated into this context. Despite their commitment to (gender) equality, gender issues continue to be a topic in relation to elderly care in the NWS regarding the recognition of care work and professional care.

Desiree Enlund: Defending women’s right to healthcare and decent working conditions in Västernorrland, northern Sweden
The post-2008 era has seen a variety of protests and resistances against economic restructuring and increasing inequalities across Western Europe. In Sweden protests around a restructured housing market and gentrification has taken centerpiece in the literature. This case study considers the role of place history in the political mobilization that have gathered momentum over the past three years in the county of Västernorrland, northern Sweden, in response to the restructuring of the public healthcare services, affecting the maternity ward and emergency care at one of three hospitals.

Anna Karlsdottir: Gender Equality in labour market policies and practices
Women’s equality as part of the labour market in the Nordic countries rests on policies with an ethos of welfare. High employment rate is not least achieved through the high ratio of women’s participation in the labour market and the parental leave policies practiced in all of the different Nordic countries. This presentation will focus on women´s role in the labour markets across the Nordic countries from statistics and maps recently published in Nordic Council of Ministers State of the Nordic Region 2018. 

Lene Myong: The Politics of Transnational Adoption Migration in Denmark
This lecture will examine public debates around transnational adoption beginning in the early 1960s and onwards. Pro-adoption discourses and the interests of adopters dominated the debates until the 1990s when adult adoptees began to form communities of their own and voice criticism of the conditions facing adoptees of color in Denmark. Today transnational adoption continues to command support across the political spectrum but in recent years politicized adoptees have worked to assemble critical interventions that seek to undermine the moral legitimacy of transnational adoption and imagine a world where other forms of care arrangements are valued.

Human life expectancy has increased dramatically over the past centuries. Today we can expect to live nearly 50 years more than in the 18the century. Better public health, better food safety, food security and diet are some of the main causes for the populations living longer and this is a challenge in particular in developed countries both for families and for the healthcare system. This conference addresses the challenge and presents different approaches from China and the Nordic countries. It builds on the long-lasting cooperation between the two regions within the food and nutritional care in the framework of Food4Growth. It gives forecasts of the nature of the challenge and solutions that can address the challenge. It outlines solutions that we have identified to be the most challenging. The conference takes a closer look at the Nordic approach in relation to how eating, nutrition and food service can be dealt with in ageing societies in order to secure safe, nutritious, healthy and liveable eating solutions. It presents some of the promising results from the last decades of R&D in Denmark and China.
