- Relations between the Nordic countries and France

- The nordic model

I am affiliated to the EURONOR project, an interdisciplinary research project that seeks to explore how the Nordic countries and the Nordic model are perceived and debated in the rest of Europe. My work is centred on how the Nordic / Scandinavian model and the Nordic countries are treated in French written press during the 1990s and 2000s.
