    Like the rest of the world, the Nordic countries have become more heterogeneous than ever before. This means that Nordic educational institutions have increasing diversity in terms of origins, languages, religions/worldviews but also socio-cultural background of the different actors involved (staff, parents and students). It is well known across the world that these countries are based on a common set of fundamental values such as democracy, social justice and inclusion. Yet when it comes to the treatment of diversity, especially in education, many issues remain unresolved.

    Many innovative and exciting research projects on diversity are currently thriving in the Nordic countries. This series thus opens up a forum for sharing advances in studies relating to the topic in Nordic education. In addition it seeks to contribute to current global discussions around multiculturalism and interculturalism in education. The series editors welcome single author manuscripts (e.g. dissertations) and edited volumes that provide an original window on the challenges and opportunities of diversity in Nordic education of any level (preschool, primary, secondary, vocational, higher education, adult education, etc.). The authors can adopt diachronic (historical) and/or synchronic approaches to questions of diversity. Comparisons between Nordic education and other parts of the world are also welcome.
