Cold War and legal culture in Finland

How did the Cold War influence Finnish legal culture, especially during 1960's and 1970s—an era of “radical reforms” which witnessed the birth of a strong welfare state. A significant portion of this presentation will be devoted to an analysis of changes of power structures in Finnish society.
