Nordic Cooperation with Russia in Education and Research

image of Nordic Cooperation with Russia in Education and Research

This study maps current and planned education and research cooperation that the Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden) have with Russia. The study includes bilateral, Nordic, regional, intergovernmental and EU levels, but focuses on the bilateral, national level. The study covers all the fields of research and all the educational levels: primary and upper-secondary schools, vocational, higher and adult education. This study is of use on both a national and international level. It serves both readers who wish to obtain an overview of cooperation in bilateral education and research between the Nordic countries and Russia, as well as readers interested in becoming acquainted with the various forms in which Nordic countries cooperate in the fields of education and research with Russia as a whole. This study, commissioned by the Nordic Council of Ministers, has been carried out by the Aleksanteri Institute, which is the Finnish Centre for Russian and Eastern European Studies at the University of Helsinki.

Preface

This study of Nordic Cooperation with Russia in Education and Research maps highly relevant themes of the Nordic Council of Ministers (NCM). The Nordic countries have their own bilateral agendas with Russia, but the advancement of cooperation is traditionally of considerable importance on the intergovernmental level as well. Wide-scale cooperation with Russia is necessary due to geographical realities: Norway and Finland both share borders with Russia, and the Baltic and the Barents Seas bind the rest of the Nordic Region to Russia. Good neighbourhood relations, growth and stability are important to the NCM’s aim to facilitate Russia’s participation as an active partner in regional cooperation.
