The Nordic Myth revisited

The Nordics brand themselves as having an embedded ethical approach to doing business and hence have no need for strict regulations or policies. But is this still the case when Nordic companies operate abroad, especially in emerging markets with higher risks of controversial practices? Is it possible to duplicate the "Nordic Model" or is this way of doing business only possible within Nordic national structures making it unsuitable for export? This workshop will question the "Nordic Model" and discuss how Nordic business principles are adaptable, or not, in changing environments.

Many companies and countries look to the Nordics for their achievements in lowering their level of perceived corruption – at least according to internationally-accepted ratings – within their own countries. But is this a true reflection of the practices of Nordic businesses abroad? Is this Nordic model an approach to anti-corruption systems that can be shared and copied from one county to another? We will address how Nordic companies deal with operating in countries with different practices and whether this has been as successful abroad as it has been at home. The outcome of the workshop is to share tools and experiences to maintain strong anti-corruption practices in a global business environment, especially in challenging, yet lucrative markets.
