How to use this website

NKN stands for Nordisk Kapitalmarkedsretligt Netværk (at least in Danish), which means the Nordic Network for Capital Market Law.

The ambition of NKN is to provide a forum for and thereby facilitate research in capital market law by academics and practitioners. We are based in the Nordic Region and comprise EU and EEA Member States, but we also welcome interaction with researchers from other jurisdictions. To keep it open we have decided to communicate in English, although it is of course possible to contribute in one of the Nordic languages.
