Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The sparsely populated northern Sweden has been the main target area for regional policy efforts since the 1960s. A rich variety of regional policy measures have been launched over the years. The paper argues for more active efforts to change attitudes and behaviour among economic actors and households in order to achieve stronger structural impacts. As a critical part of this elaboration is suggested of new proactive strategies aiming at more sustainable spatial structures of welfare distribution and job opportunities in this type of increasingly vulnerable peripheries. - (BJ)
