Our special guest Mary Hilson, author of ‘The Nordic Model: Scandinavia since 1945’ was up for that challenge.

The meeting in the Scottish Parliament was a great success and Mary Hilson spoke to a packed Committee Room 1 on October 27 2011. A huge range of issues were raised in a lively discussion where the concept of a ‘Nordic Model’ or ‘Nordic Models’ was given a good airing.
