Nordic Labour Journal

| Photo: Tomas Bertelsen

is an online publication with articles by journalists and writers from the Nordic countries. We aim to produce news and features about working life in a Nordic perspective. Editor-in-chief is Björn Lindahl.

Furthermore the staff consists of journalist Kerstin Ahlberg, editor at EU & Arbetsrätt, who is our permanent contributor on labour Law.  We also cooperate with a team of freelancers from all of the Nordic countries. 

Our main focus is the labour market, work environments and labour law within the Nordic models, predominantly based on collective agreements between unions and employers in cooperation with the authorities.

Nordic Labour Journal is published by the Work Research Institute, OsloMet university on commission from the Nordic Council of Ministers. We focus on the cooperation between Nordic countries, between the Nordic region and the EU and the relationship with other countries and international organisations like the ILO and OECD.

We wish to highlight the effects that trends; within social media, new technology, digitalisation, globalisation and demographics, have on working life and how the demands on industrial relations, leadership, unions and workers change with them. Topical issues are sustainable work environments, labour markets and future challenges, migration, youth and other vulnerable groups, entrepreneurship and green workplaces (see In Focus and Topics).

The Nordic Labour Journal is also published in Scandinavian Languages, Arbeidsliv i Norden ( We issue a free, monthly newsletter in both English and  Scandinavian languages (except in January, July and August). It is also possible to print  the newsletter as a pdf.
