    Abstract

    [From the Introduction]. In the period 1950–2000 extensive societal changes took place in the Nordic countries. Studies show far-reaching demographic, economic and political changes that have naturally affected the legal regulation.1 The rules governing the area of social security are the subject of this article and can be described as politicised law. The article will analyse changes within three areas of social security, the individual’s possibility of retaining support aid when needed; the possibility of being covered by insurance protection in various situations of risk and of receiving medical care and treatment in the event of illness. The source of knowledge for this analysis is the legal norms and principles which have been created under the influence of actual changes in society, such as demographic and economic changes. Changes in the political ideology and the politicians’ trust that the state will guide and achieve societal changes are mirrored in the legal changes during this period of time.
