Estonian Foreign Policy Institute, Key Takeaways from The Conference “Nordic-Baltic Visions for Europe”, September 2018

The Estonian Foreign Policy Institute together with the Representation of the European Commission in Estonia and Friedrich Ebert Foundation held a conference “Nordic-Baltic Visions for Europe: Does the EU unite or divide the Baltic region?”. What divides and brings together the Nordic-Baltic member states of the EU? Are the Nordic-Baltic member states becoming a block in the EU? How does it affect the everyday workings of the EU?

The conference discussed the Nordic-Baltic perspectives on key issues on the EU’s agenda and highlight future challenges and goals for regional coordination and cooperation in the EU framework. Looking at different policy areas, it aimed, on the one hand, to identify (potential) shared interests and ways to promote them, and on the other hand, explored disagreements among the Nordic-Baltic members of the EU. The discussions will feed into an EFPI/ICDS Report on the topic.
