Freedom of Movement within the Social and Labourmarket Area in the Nordic Countries

Summary of obstacles and potential solutions

Removing barriers to mobility and encouraging crossborder freedom of movement have long been priorities for the Nordic countries. A series of analyses and reports have addressed the issue. In Punkaharju in 2007, the Nordic prime ministers decided that it was time for this work to enter into a more operational phase and they set up the Freedom of Movement Forum. In addition to safeguarding citizens' rights, work on this issue makes the Nordic countries more competitive and promotes economic growth.

The Expert Group operated under the auspices of the Nordic Committee of Senior Officials for Health and Social Affairs (ÄK-S) and the Nordic Committee of Senior Officials for Labour (ÄK-A). The Group was commissioned to examine the obstacles that people moving between the Nordic countries encounter with regard to the labour market, social security and social services. Its work was based on a list of obstacles drawn up by the Nordic Council of Ministers’ Secretariat.
