Norden and the Nordic countries are facing a new and more challenging geopolitical context.
The overall aim of this project is to offer a comparative study of the five Nordic states’ foreign policy responses to current international developments. Running from 2017 and through 2018, the project will systematically map and compare (a) policy discussions and planning work and (b) concrete adaptations (resource allocations, organizational structures) within the five Nordic states’ foreign ministries. We are particularly interested in Nordic states’ relations with the great powers, with key international institutions and with the other Nordic countries.
The project is funded by The Nordic Council of Ministers.
