520    The Nordic states were among the first in the world to 
       enact general gender equality and anti-discrimination laws
       with low threshold enforcement mechanisms. Today, the 
       Nordic countries top the World Economic Forum's Gender Gap
       Index -but they have still not succeeded in closing the 
       gender gap. This book draws a diverse and complex picture 
       of the long, uneven, and unfinished process towards 
       substantive equality in four Nordic countries: Sweden, 
       Finland, Norway, and Iceland. It presents the Nordic 
       gender equality model's systematic use of three measures: 
       overarching gender policies, legislation that has an 
       explicit or implicit impact on gender relations, and 
       gender equality and anti-discrimination laws with low-
       threshold enforcement systems. What potentials and 
       limitations do the Nordic gender equality and anti-
       discrimination law regimes have to combat individual 
       discrimination and structural inequality? Can these 
       regimes function as a driver of political, legal, economic,
       cultural, and social change and as a corrective to laws, 
       policies, and practices that uphold existing inequalities 
       and, if so, to what extent? Can weaknesses in the equality
       and anti-discrimination laws and the way they are enforced
       hamper efforts to close remaining gender gaps? Rather than
       looking at the Nordic gender equality laws and policies in
       isolation, the book situates their development and 
       transformative potential within a changing European and 
       international political and legal landscape. 
545 0  Anne Hellum is professor emerita at the Department of 
       Public and International Law within the Faculty of Law of 
       the University of Oslo, Norway. She was the director of 
       the Institute of Women's Law, Child Law, Equality, and 
       Anti-Discrimination Law from 2000 to 2023 and the director
       of the faculty research group Rights, Individuals, Culture,
       and Society (RICS) from 2006 to 2016. She teaches courses 
       on women's human rights in context, national and 
       international equality and anti-discrimination law, and 
       legal anthropology. Her main research interests lie in how
       law responds to intersecting identities such as gender, 
       ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, and gender 
       identity and the plurality of intersecting international, 
       national, and local norms. She has published a series of 
       books, articles, and book chapters on these topics. She is
       the co-editor (with Henriette Sinding Aasen) of Women's 
       Human Rights: CEDAW in International, Regional and 
       National Law (Cambridge University Press 2013), the editor
       of Human Rights, Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity 
       (Routledge 2017), and the co-author (with Vibeke Blaker 
       Strand) of the textbook Likestillings- og 
       diskrimineringsrett [Equality and Anti-Discrimination Law]
       (Gyldendal 2022). Ingunn Ikdahl is a professor at the 
       Department of Public and International Law within the 
       Faculty of Law of the University of Oslo, Norway. She 
       chaired the faculty's research group Welfare, Rights and 
       Discrimination (VERDI) in 2017-022. Ikdahl has worked on 
       women's law, non-discrimination, and rights to property 
       and natural resources in sub-Saharan Africa. Currently, 
       she is involved in research projects examining different 
       dimensions of the Norwegian welfare state, including 
       digitalization of the welfare state, welfare and rights 
       after the 22 July terror attack, health rights and health 
       services in prison, and the role of EEA law in Norwegian 
       welfare administration. Her interest in gender 
       perspectives, interdisciplinarity, legal pluralism, and 
       legal theory cuts across these projects. Her publications 
       include Kjønn og rett: Kvinne-, kjønns- og 
       likestillingsperspektiver i jusstudiet [Gender and Law: 
       Women's, Gender, and Gender Equality Perspectives in Legal
       Education] (co-edited with Anne Hellum and others; 
       Cappelen Damm 2022); 'Om kvinnerett og kjønsperspektiv' 
       [On Women's Law and Gender Perspectives] in A. P. Høberg 
       and J. Ø Sunde (eds), Juridisk metode og tenkemtē [Legal 
       Methods and Legal Thinking] (Universitetsforlaget 2019); 
       and Rettigheter i velferdsstaten: Begreper, trender, 
       teorier [Rights in the Welfare State: Concepts, Trends, 
       Theories] (co-edited with Vibeke Blaker Strand; Gyldendal 
       2016). Vibeke Blaker Strand is a professor at the 
       Department of Public and International Law within the 
       Faculty of Law of the University of Oslo, Norway. She is 
       the elected vice-dean for research at the Faculty of Law 
       for 2020-2023. Since 2022, she has been the chair of the 
       Faculty of Law's Board for Equality and Diversity. In 2017
       -020, she was the leader of the faculty's research group 
       on Welfare, Rights and Discrimination (VERDI). She has 
       been teaching on the topic of equality and non-
       discrimination law for almost two decades. Her research 
       interests are connected to individual and group rights, 
       discrimination, equality, diversity, and freedom of 
       religion and belief. She is interested in legal 
       methodology, the implementation and application of 
       European and international legal sources within Norwegian 
       law (EU/EEA law, the European Convention on Human Rights, 
       and UN human rights conventions), and how the different 
       legal regimes interact. She has several publications 
       within these fields, including Diskrimineringsvern og 
       religionsutøvelse [Non-Discrimination and Religious 
       Practice] (Gyldendal 2012); Rettigheter i velferdsstaten: 
       Begreper, trender, teorier [Rights in the Welfare State: 
       Concepts, Trends, Theories] (co-edited with Ingunn Ikdahl;
       Gyldendal 2016); Menneskerettigheter i et nøtteskall 
       [Human Rights in a Nutshell] (co-authored with Kjetil 
       Mujezinović Larsen; 2nd edn, Gyldendal 2021); and 
       Likestillingsog diskrimineringsrett [Equality and Anti-
       Discrimination Law] (co-authored with Anne Hellum; 
       Gyldendal 2022). Eva-Maria Svensson is a professor at the 
       Department of Law within the School of Business, Economics,
       and Law of the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. She was 
       the director of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Gender 
       Research at the University of Gothenburg between 2012 and 
       2017, and deputy head of the Department of Law between 
       2018 and 2021. Her research interests are feminist legal 
       studies, legal philosophy and theory, freedom of 
       expression, and ageing. She teaches equality and anti-
       discrimination law and legal theory. She is a co-editor of
       several books published by Ashgate that bring together 
       feminist legal scholars from the Nordic countries, along 
       with special issues published in the Nordic Journal of Law
       and Society. She is the co-author (with Åsa Gunnarsson) of
       the textbooks Rtt̃sdogmatik [Legal Dogmatics] 
       (Studentlitteratur 2023) and Genusrtt̃svetenskap [Gender 
       Legal Studies] (Studentlitteratur 2009). A second edition 
       of the latter, with two additional authors (Jannice Kll̃ 
       and Wanna Svedberg), was published in August 2018.
