The Finnish-Norwegian relationship has deepened considerably over the recent years. However, Finland’s NATO membership has opened a whole new horizon for the two allies to intensify their collaboration. Finland is currently laying the foundation for its policy and profile within the Alliance. Norway’s long experience from NATO will undoubtedly be a source of inspiration for Finnish policymakers.
This FIIA seminar zooms in on Norway’s role in NATO and the broader international arena. It also examines potential avenues for deepening the Finnish-Norwegian relationship. Are there opportunities for learning and experience-sharing between Finland and Norway regarding NATO and the security environment more broadly? Do Finland and Norway see eye to eye on the building blocks of Northern European security and regional cooperation?
The seminar is part of the research project “Norway and Finland in a changed security context” led by the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs in collaboration with FIIA. It is financed by the Norwegian Ministry of Defence through 2023.
