NORDEK. A Plan for Increased Nordic Economic Co-operation and Integration 1968–1970
Finnish Society of Sciences and Letters

Vaasa 2007, 233 pp.


This archive based study disproves the myth of ideological Nordism and of short term political developments outside Norden as most important for the NORDEK iniative. This study also disproves the myth that NORDEK plan was a political and ideological symbol without socioeconomic substance. The purpose with NORDEK was to create a better basis for generating economic growth and social welfare. The study finally shows that the NORDEK failure in 1970 was a result of a power struggle in Finnish domestic politics and lacking political will in the other Nordic countries to continue without Finland.
