Nordic Information on Gender
In 2012 the Nordic Ministers for Gender Equality decided to place Nordic Information on Gender, NIKK, as a cooperative body at the Swedish Secretariat for Gender Research, University of Gothenburg, Sweden. NIKK carries out the assignment on behalf of the Nordic Council of Ministers.
NIKK’s assignment consists of two parts: one relating to knowledge and communication and the other to serving as a project secretariat. NIKK is to gather and disseminate research, policy, knowledge and praxis in the area of gender equality, from a Nordic perspective, promote and bring visibility to the Nordic gender equality cooperation, assist the Nordic Council of Ministers with communication channels, ideas and material as well as administer the Council’s gender equality fund.
