The Finnish Journal of Foreign Affairs
The latest issue of the Finnish Journal of Foreign Affairs, published in mid-September, analyses the new world order in the making. The journal asks whether the West is losing its leading position as China and other rising powers are challenging it both economically and politically.
In addition, the journal interviewed Finnish Foreign Minister Timo Soini on his ambitions in foreign policy and his stance on NATO.
In a long essay, Soini’s predecessor Erkki Tuomioja discusses what the West could have done better in its diplomacy towards Russia, and how to look for ways to end the war in Ukraine.
The next issue of the journal will be published in early December. The journal is available both as a printed journal and as an e-paper at lehtiluukku.fi.
