The Humanities in Norway — Meld. St. 25 (2016–2017) Report to the Storting (white paper) Summary

This is the first political document to give a full presentation of the humanities in Norway. It discusses how the potential of the humanities may be unleashed in order to meet the major challenges of our time – in business, in cultural life, in schools and in other important areas of society such as the armed forces. Policy changes and adjustments will be necessary, but so will changes at the educational and research institutions themselves as well as in their surroundings: society and working life, which are to absorb knowledge from the humanities in the form of research findings and fresh graduates. A central aim of this white paper is to contribute to greater mutual curiosity, exploration and proximity between the humanities and other subject areas and areas of society.
