Nordic Information on Gender, NIKK
The Nordic Council of Ministers has decided to place NIKK (Nordic Information on Gender) as a cooperative body at the Swedish Secretariat for Gender Research, University of Gothenburg, Sweden. The assignment is ongoing.
- Gather and disseminate national research, policy and practice in the area of gender equality in a Nordic perspective to a broad group of interested parties. This will be accomplished via a website, an e-newsletter, social media and other media channels.
- Disseminate comparative information on current equality and gender research in the Nordic region. The aim is that the knowledge shared will serve as a basis for policy discussions at Council meetings, conferences and seminars in the Nordic countries and the rest of Europe as well as in other international contexts.
- Establish a system for collection of information from all Nordic countries and communication of the gathered information in the Scandinavian languages and in English. Communication in Nordic languages other than the Scandinavian is desired, and will be arranged to the extent the available resources allow.
- Help form networks for Nordic discussions related to gender research and gender policy and increase the visibility of the Nordic gender policy work.
NIKK shall be able to serve as a project secretariat for the implementation of activities in action plans and cooperation programmes.
NIKK shall contribute with ideas and material for new priorities, activities and projects in connection with the development of Nordic cooperation programmes and action plans within the field of gender equality.
