“Nordic Noir”, Nordic history, the traumas and the dark side of Nordic countries were the main focus of the second event. Since the Nordic countries are often shown as picture-perfect utopian nations, members were eager to hear some shared wisdom from the four ambassadors and the guest of the night, journalist Ingrid Brekke on the lesser known side of the Scandinavian dream. While the discussion was not shying away from sensitive topics and past mistakes of each countries, the unity during times of national traumas and tragedies, an emphasis on proper education, and a trusting relationship between citizens and governments were all mentioned as reasons, why the Nordic countries were still able to become global role-models. The evening was hosted at the Lóvasút Cultural Centre by the Norwegian Embassy.
