 Project objective

This project, called ScanRights, provides the first examination of economic and social rights in the multilateral diplomacy of the three Scandinavian countries: Sweden, Norway, and Denmark at the United Nations from 1970 to 2000. Through a transnational approach to multi-national archival research, the project seeks to understand why the Scandinavian countries increased their support for poverty reduction and economic and social rights at a time when egalitarian politics were on the decline elsewhere in the West. It does so through two main research objectives: First, it examines Scandinavian contributions to the debate on The New International Economic Order from 1974 to 1982 (O1). Second, it examines Scandinavian diplomacy on the Right to Development in the 1980s and 1990s (O2). In doing so the project makes three important contributions to the existing scholarship. First, it addresses the neglect of economic and social rights in the history of Scandinavian human rights diplomacy. Second, it adopts a transnational multi-archival approach that goes beyond the national histories. Third, it provides an examination of Scandinavian human rights diplomacy absent in the international scholarship. The project is designed to improve the researcher’s career prospects by broadening his scientific profile, strengthening his teaching and supervision skills, and furthering his professional development through training in transferable skills. It adopts a targeted strategy to disseminate and communicate the research results to different audiences. The implementation is secured through a comprehensive work plan and the strong commitment of the supervisor and host institution, which provides the optimal intellectual infrastructure, specialized in interdisciplinary research on human rights.
