cultural values, Norway, privatization, social welfare
Scandinavian Journal of Social Welfare
The method of deviant case analysis is used to study privatization under the least hospitable circumstances. Norway, a country steeped in principles of egalitarianism, is moving in new directions, mostly due to forces from the global economy. This article puts contemporary trends in sociocultural context. The implications for the health and mental health fields are discussed. Copyright © 1994, Wiley Blackwell. All rights reserved
