Austria, Finland and Sweden joined the European Union during times when decisive steps were taken towards an ever closer Union. As member states, they have lived through the adoption of the euro, eastern enlargement as well as the severe EU crises of the past decade including the Brexit. What was the key rationale of their membership in 1995? Have there been major changes in their general approach towards the EU? What do Austria, Finland and Sweden wish to achieve in the EU in the future?
