Abstract [en]

Due to the tradition of ‘Nordic openness’, and intensified by international trends, the normof policy-making transparency is strong in Finland. Inspired by organizational institutionalism,the present article studies what this notion of transparency means in practice. A casestudy of a social security reform committee is presented. The consensus-building practicestypical of Finnish corporatist policy-making significantly constrained the transparency ofgovernment communication during the lifetime of the committee. The government communicatedactively in public to meet the demand for transparency; but in order to secureeffective bargaining, the government communicated issues concerning the committee sovaguely that it did not inspire wide public discussion. Public discussion was instead mainlyfuelled by leaks. These findings suggest that a strong norm of transparency can lead toceremonial transparency, where government public communication is loosely coupled withpolicy-making practices. These ceremonies might strengthen the notion of Nordic openness
