Subsequently, public opinion and leadership in Finland supports the nation’s application for NATO membership. Given Finland’s 1340 km border with Russia, its policy of neutrality in the Cold War and its current status as a militarily non-aligned country, ascension into NATO would represent a significant geopolitical realignment of alliances with yet unknown implications.
The aim of this panel is to analyse and discuss the potential consequences of Finland’s potential NATO membership. We will reserve time for attendees' questions.
