Nordic conservatism is in a renaissance, with new ideas and beliefs emerging to support the old. Chief amongst them is the debate over the foundations and fundamentals underpinning free society. Nordic countries are at the forefront of this debate over the balance of freedom and responsibility in both government and civil society – balancing the role of the state with that of the individual.
