INTRODUCTION Describing what characterise the Nordic welfare state model is the core aim of this article. Furthermore, the article will analyse whether the model will continue to be different from other welfare state types. The Nordic welfare states have been, as other welfare states, under pressure from Europeanisation and globalization. These challenges for regional defined, historical developed and managed welfare states could be a reason for converging trends in welfare states. Furthermore, this could be a reason for the development of a more uniform and common European type of welfare states. This due to that it is to be expected, that a common European model would be under less pressure within the European Union and the Economic and Monetary Union as this could adapt to the economic possibilities. Pressure for change may apply in particular in the case of welfare states models with high emphasis on state financing, such as the Nordic welfare state model. A clear focus of this article is a depiction of the specific characteristics of the Nordic welfare state, but done in a comparative perspective and at the same time questioning and discussing convergence in a European perspective. The article uses the comparative methodology as this and models make it possible to have a mirror with which to compare the Nordic model.
