The Nordic Dimension in Education – Between Myth and Reality


  • John Benedicto Krejsler Aarhus University, Denmark


The article is an introduction to the special double issue of Nordic Studies in Education poses and elaborates upon the question of whether there is such a thing as a Nordic dimension in education. And, if so, what then are the defining similarities and differences in educational terms between the five small countries Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden? This special issue follows up on the 2nd Annual Nordic Educational Conversation held on 23 September 2021, where the Nordic Educational Research Association invited participants to a discussion on the theme of the Nordic dimension in education and whether it is a myth or a living reality.
