+ Register for this Event 

Description

DESCRIPTION: The Nordic countries are often viewed as a group of small states successfully pursuing an international agenda in accordance with the fundamental values of their welfare states. Over the past three decades Nordic foreign and security policies have evolved considerably providing new opportunities for cooperation but also disclosing significant differences in worldviews and strategic choices. This lecture unpacks the state of Nordic foreign and security policies today and discusses current challenges and opportunities.

Anders Wivel teaches international relations at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. His main research interests are foreign and security policies of small European states, the intersection of European integration and security, and the realist tradition in international relations theory. His last book, co-edited with Peter Nedergaard, is The Routledge Handbook of Scandinavian Politics, Routledge, 2017.
