Nordic Co-operation - Meeting Report
Members Restaurant Scottish Parliament
5th November 6-8.30pm
Hosted by Jayne Baxter MSP
Chaired by journalist and NH Director Lesley Riddoch
As promised, this meeting was recorded in three sections. In the first section, there are welcomes (5 minutes approx. ) from Jayne Baxter MSP, Humza Yousaf MSP, and Lesley Riddoch. There follows a short presentation (20 minutes approx. ) from Mary Hilson, UCL lecturer and author of ‘Nordic Model’, who outlines the historical background and context for ‘Nordic Cooperation’. Johan Strang, from the Centre for Nordic Studies University of Helsinki and author of the ‘Nordic Communities’ report , presented a wide ranging examination of ‘Nordic Cooperation’ ( 20 minutes approx. )
The second section is a recording of the ‘Question and Answer’ session where the audience gets an opportunity to pose questions, make assertions and generally discuss ‘Nordic Cooperation’. This section lasts for approximately 70 minutes.
And finally, it is important never to mention birthdays to the cheerful Nordic Horizons crowd, as our host Jayne Baxter MSP found out. The reason? They will sing ‘Happy Birthday ‘to you.
