The series editors welcome methodologically driven and critical reflections on the nature, construction and use of Nordicity, especially texts that probe historical discourses, impacts of neoliberalism, geopolitics, marketization, populism and polarization, political fragmentation, strategic communication, and increasing inequality.
The editors hope to create a bridge between the more humanistic Nordic studies tradition and the exciting comparative and international relations-oriented social science and law research programs.
The series welcomes submissions from a broad range of disciplines across the social sciences, law and humanities, particularly those utilizing interpretations and analytic frameworks moving beyond predominant political economy, welfare studies and legal path dependency approaches. Works can be located within a single discipline but should have some relevance beyond; contributions with a policy dimension are also welcome.
If you have an idea for a new book in Nordic Studies in a Global Context, please send a written proposal to the Series Editors. For guidance on how to structure your proposal, please visit: www.routledge.com.
