Nordic labour law research – past, present and future

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


In this article the author looks at the history of Nordic labour law. His attempt is to explore the specific features of Nordic labour law in a historic perspective and to map the most influential legal scholars and their main thinking. The author divides the development of Nordic labour law into three historical periods: The formation of labour law, which mainly took place before the Second World War, the post war
period of consolidation of labour law, and the period of transformation from the late 1970s and early 1980s up until today. Based on the overview he draws some significant conclusions on the specific features of the pluralistic Nordic labour law of today and tomorrow.
