Ikea makes big promises with first Indian store

Ikea, the retail company that revolutionised the industry with affordable, self-assembly furniture with a Scandinavian twist opens its first Indian outlet, with success far from guaranteed. Ikea is present in 49 countries, but its previous attempt in 2006 at reaching India’s burgeoning middle class fell foul of local regulations.

This Is Norway’s Plan To Decriminalize Drugs (HBO)

As the federal government tightens drug legalization policy in the states, a consensus is developing in Europe. Norway — run by a coalition of right wing parties — is decriminalizing all drug use and possession following the successful Portuguese model.

Norway will become the second country in the world where the use and possession of anything from cocaine to heroin will not be a criminal offense.

Despite efforts for over a decade to make drug-use safe in Norway, this Scandinavian country has one of the highest overdose mortality rates in Europe. With around 9,000 high risk heroin users in Norway, many find themselves living in and out of jail.

By treating drug use as a health issue, rather than a criminal one, Norway hopes to bring drug users into the healthcare system so they can get the treatment they were not able to before. VICE News spoke with one heroin addict Lill Casson who is lucky to be alive — having been addicted since childhood.

Inside The Swedish City Where Gun Violence is on The Rise

Donald Trump’s recent comments lamenting a nonexistent terrorist attack in Sweden have put the Scandinavian country’s crime rate into the global spotlight. But while the terrorist incident might not have happened and the crime rate in Sweden has only been rising modestly, one city there does have a real problem with gang violence.

Malmö, Sweden’s third-largest city, has seen a spike in shootings this year already; and given Sweden’s reputation as a refugee-friendly nation, many commentators have been quick to point a finger. And now, hysteria from both the Left and the Right is overshadowing the facts.

VICE News went to speak to some of those caught up in the violence in Malmö.

The Scandinavian Hygge Lifestyle Is Taking The World By Storm: VICE News Tonight on HBO

Hygge is a Danish term defined as “a quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being.” In the past year, this concept of Scandinavian coziness has made inroads with an international audience. At least six books about hygge were published in the United States this year, with more to come in 2017. Author of the international best-seller The Little Book of Hygge, Meik Wiking takes VICE News on a hygge tour of Copenhagen coffee shops, library gardens and wine bars that epitomize the lifestyle trend.
