TEPSA Policy Paper by Hanna Ojanen “Nordic Defence Cooperation – inspiration for the EU or a lesson in matching expectations?”
The idea of deepening defence cooperation among the Nordic countries may still come as a surprise to many, all the more so as these countries now seem to be leaders in this field. Not only do they have practically daily concrete examples of cooperation – such as the 3-week training exercise in joint air surveillance in the Icelandic airspace in February 2014 – but also a recently-adopted political vision for the future development of this cooperation.
