Finnish Section of the Nordic Federation of Public Administration (NAF)


The Nordic Federation of Public Administration (Nordiska administrativa förbundet, NAF) is an interdisciplinary association founded in 1918 in the nordic countries. The association gathers together people who are interested in public administration to promote Nordic cooperation and the knowledge of administration in the Nordics. The association publishes a scientific publication Nordisk administrativt tidsskrift (NAT).

Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden each have a national section. Every three years the national sections have a joint general meeting.

The Finnish section holds meetings and seminars for its members and also grants scholorships and gives awards within the association's objectives.
