Nordic Communities

a vision for the future

image of Nordic Communities

Although commissioned to mark the 60th anniversary of the Nordic Council in 2012, this is no runofthemill commemorative publication. The Nordic Council wants to look to the future and follow up on the renewed debate about cooperation.There is much to suggest that the Nordic Region is experiencing a renaissance. The crisis in the EU, the strength of the Nordic welfare model and global interest in the Arctic are just some of the factors bringing the countries together. Foreign and defence policy have become key areas of cooperation, and therefore the structures established in the 1950s and 1970s are no longer fit for purpose.This book presents a vision for the future based on visible, highprofile and resultoriented cooperation in Nordic Communities.

Foreword

Although commissioned to mark the 60th anniversary of the Nordic Council in 2012, this is no run-of-the-mill commemorative publication. Rather than taking a retrospective approach, it looks to the future of Nordic co-operation, following up on the debate rekindled by the Swedish historian Gunnar Wetterberg’s book United Nordic Federation (2010) and the Stoltenberg report (2009) on working more closely together on foreign and security policy. In spring 2011, the Nordic Council commissioned the Centre for Nordic Studies (CENS) at the University of Helsinki to conduct a study and to present proposals for strengthening Nordic co-operation.
