        • the international relief activities
    • History 2: NOM in the beginning
      • By the end of the 60s NOM had become a biannual event, discussing and reporting about current issues.
      • Joint activities were restricted to various studies.
      • There were also some attempts to create joint policies prior to international meetings and seminars.

        • International issues: European meetings, solidarity statements
    • History 4: NOM in the 80s (1/2)
      • At the beginning of 80s each NOM concentrated on few issues agreed upon in advance, and the NOM was more like a seminar. New topics were the gender issues and “Nordic nuclear-free zone”.
      • Later the talks concentrated on social educational policies. The idea of NOM-secretariat became strong, but after thorough discussion it was abandoned.
    • History 5: NOM in the 80s (2/2)
      • NOM got involved with Nordplus, and gained some financing to employ a project secretary (who searched problems of the Nordplus).
      • Ever since Nordplus has been the theme for NOM.
