Media systems theory (Hallin & Mancini 2004, 2017) have been a productive theoretical framework for understanding the relationship between media and politics in a comparative perspective. Recent developments in the growing research field has suggested that the ‘democratic-corporatist’ media system model is not a ‘one-model-fits-all’ with regard to the Northern European countries (Nord 2008, Brüggeman et. al. 2014, Ohlsson 2015, Syvertsen et. al. 2014). However, empirical studies of the media systems of the Nordic countries tend to have the larger Nordic countries – Norway, Finland, Sweden, and Denmark – as their object, leaving us with little research on the smaller media systems in the other Nordic countries and autonomous regions. This special issue addresses Media Systems in these other and less researched Nordic countries and autonomous regions, with original contributions from Greenland, Iceland, the Faroe Island, Samiland and Åland.
