Since 2014 the Baltic Sea region has been one of the tensest contact zones between Russia and NATO, while the geopolitical, strategic, and economic importance of the Arctic is again rising. How will the current dynamics affect Russia’s threat perceptions and what security challenges will Russia face in the future? This online workshop will focus on analysing Russia’s present and future threat perceptions, especially in Northern Europe.
