Abstract

An Excellence Hub in Research, Education and Public Outreach ReNEW (Reimagining Norden in an Evolving World: An Ex­cel­lence Hub in Research, Education and Pub­lic Out­reach) aims at facilitating original research on the Nordic region within a challenging global context. Promoting mobility, exchange, conferences, and education, it brings together six Nordic universities in a strategic hub with world-wide connections. It involves the humanities and social sciences, including diverse strands of scholarship engaged with Norden. Within ReNEW, Södertörn University has the particular task of contributing to the problematisation of relations with overlapping and adjacent areas such as the Baltic Sea region and Eastern Europe. ReNEW also facilitates cooperation and partnership between researchers and decision makers from the public, private and third sector.

Applying cross-disciplinary and critical analyses ReNEW examines Nordic responses to global challenges in order to better understand their paradoxes, added-value, and limitations. Six cross-cutting themes are the initial focus of activities:

  1. Nordic cooperation and region-building
  2. Democracy, governance, and law
  3. Public policy, gender equality, and labour markets
  4. Imagining Norden – branding and reputation
  5. Multiculturalism and globalization
  6. Culture and media

Major instruments for achieving the goals of ReNEW are:

  • A mobility and exchange programme for scholars and students.
  • Educating a new generation of scholars through an annual Summer School and other Phd and post-doc research training activities.
  • Conferences and seminars including smaller workshops and an annual conference arranged at one of the six partner universities
  • Public outreach, providing research-based knowledge with relevance for policy-making institutions and promoting dialogue with policy-makers, business, and third sector activists.
  • Raising the standard and international visibility of academic publishing on the Nordic region by concentrating the expertise, establishing a book series, and by providing an opportunity for researchers to publish their aritcles in a wide range of first class journals.
  • Establishing a digital resource and a web platform that offers a comprehensive source of research-based information on the Nordic countries in easily-accessible formats.

ReNEW is a joint venture of the University of Helsinki, the University of Oslo, Södertörn University, Aarhus University, Copenhagen Business School, and the University of Iceland.
