CMS Seminar – The Nordics, NATO, and transatlantic security

The war in Ukraine is a watershed moment for defence and security in the Nordic region. Sweden and Finland have applied for NATO membership. Denmark has decided to end its EU defence opt-out. All the Nordic countries increase defence spending and reposition themselves in the changing European and transatlantic security landscape. But what does the new situation mean for the Nordic countries’ defence and security policies? And what are the main opportunities and challenges that follow from NATO’s northern enlargement, for each of the Nordic countries and for the group as a whole?

In this seminar, experts from Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland, and Denmark discuss the implications of the dramatic changes of 2022 for Nordic and transatlantic defence and security.
