Nordic Esports

Nordic Esports project examines esports in the Nordic countries from various perspectives, aiming to create a thorough description on how esports is organised and what kind of esports culture is being created in the Nordics.

Research focuses on three key areas: (1) organisation and funding of esports in the Nordic countries; (2) values and politics in Nordic esports; and (3) diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in Nordic esports.

The project is led by Postdoctoral Research Fellows Usva Friman and Matilda Ståhl as a part of the Centre of Excellence in Game Culture Studies funded by the Research Council of Finland 2018–2025 (decision number: 353265).
