The Nordic model – and whether it really exists – is examined in the Nordicom anthology Power, Communication, and Politics in the Nordic Countries, which starts by describing the political and media systems in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.
The smallest Nordic media systems – the Faroe Islands, Greenland, Iceland, Sápmi and Åland – are seldom in focus. Nordicom Review delves into how these media systems work and what challenges small countries and regions grapple with.
Regulation of tech giants is a hot topic – we link to the latest EU media policy news. As for the Nordics, the Danish Minister of Culture proposes that global platforms pay for Danish media content, and in Finland and Sweden, media support is on the agenda.
