About the Book:

The new context of globalisation marked by rapid communication and information has irrevocably changed inter-state relations. Distances are no longer prohibitive and knowledge of states and their societies is not restricted to their immediate neighbourhoods. New contacts are established and old ones intensify. This volume is a collection of ten papers looking at the small smart achieving states of the Nordic region. India has long established relation with these countries. This collection highlights how the context of globalization has opened up for India and the Nordics new possibilities and opportunities for greater collaboration and learning from each other. Welfare, energy, environment, diversity management are all possible areas of collaboration that can be of mutual benefit.
