SAMAK (Arbejderbevægelsens nordiske samarbejdskommitté), or the Joint Committee of the Nordic Social Democratic Labour Movement,[1] assembles the social democratic parties and labour councils in the Nordic countries. SAMAK consists of all social democratic parties and trade union organisations in the Nordic countries, including in Greenland, the Faroe Islands and Åland. The President of the committee is Helle Thorning-Schmidt, the Prime Minister of Denmark and chairman of the Danish Labour Party.[1] Inger Segelström is the General Secretary.[1]

The committee was formed during the first Scandinavian Workers' Congress in Göteborg in 1886.

SAMAK holds a congress every four years, with the next congress scheduled for autumn 2014.
