Securing Northern Europe

On September 20, 2019, the Atlantic Council Northern Europe organized a seminar highlighting the launch of a new issue brief titled ‘Securing Northern Europe: Toward A Comprehensive Approach’. Director for Northern Europe Anna Wieslander and Project Assistant Elin Schiffer presented the report for an audience consisting of invited members of parliament, civil servants, foreign diplomats and representatives from various organizations. Following the presentation, the report was discussed by Ian Brzezinski, Resident Senior Fellow at the Atlantic Council, Dr. David Behar, First Counsellor at the French Embassy in Stockholm and Dr. Björn von Sydow, Chairman Swedish Defence Commission, former Defence Minister and Speaker of the Swedish parliament.

During 2017-2018, three high-level international conferences took place in Stockholm, arranged by the Atlantic Council Northern Europe Office, and the issue brief is based on those discussions. You can find summaries of those conferences here.
