Have your say!

How are topics chosen for the NNL?

Our aim is to provide particularly young people with a variety of research-based perspectives on the complexities of society on a local, national, regional and international level. It is crucial that we listen to what topics young people want to learn about, what they are struggling with in their every day lives, and what their aspirations are for the future.

A consultation process for the New Nordic Lexicon took place from April to December 2022 (See the results here: What is important to young people in the Nordic region?). Our outreach is particularly to young people in the Nordic countries and researchers within the social sciences and humanities. We have conducted focus groups with young people in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland, and have received input from across the Nordic region. But you are still welcome to suggest new topics for the New Nordic Lexicon!

  • If you are between 16-30 years of age and live in the Nordic region, tell us what interests or intrigues you about Nordic society, history and culture. We will find a researcher to answer your questions.
  • If you are a researcher within the social sciences and humanities and would like to work with us to disseminate your research, get in touch.
  • Join the New Nordic Lexicon Reference Group, a group of researchers and students who meet every few months to input to the development of the New Nordic Lexicon.
