In this introductory chapter, the concept of the responsible university is introduced and put into context, first concerning other organizations and society at large, secondly in a historical perspective and thirdly related to policy initiatives across the globe. We also discuss how to implement this concept within the complex organizations that universities constitute. Lastly, we present some key features of the Nordic countries and introduce the empirical chapters of the book.
