In the Stockholm Social Forum 2017, the new types of challenges of the Swedish and Korean states will be the main topics of a half-day conference. The Swedish experiences will be of great use for finding solutions for the Korean attempts in expansion of welfare state services. Whilst the East Asian experiences may give some inspirations for overcoming the new challenges of Sweden.
