How is the new security policy situation affecting the Nordic countries? How do we best uphold security and peace in the Nordic Region?


10:00 AM - 10:45 AM
Debate meeting

What does the Nordic debate look at a time of war in Europe? What will Nordic co-operation look like in the future, and what are the implications of all the Nordic countries soon likely being members of NATO? Peace is a prerequisite for welfare and is decisive if we’re to achieve the vision of the Nordic Region being the most sustainable and integrated region in the world.
