The common security and defence policy of the European Union is rapidly being developed and is also a central part of the security of Finland. How does the Finnish account of security and defence policy meet the challenges of the future? What will be Sweden’s priorities for the presidency? What will this mean for Åland?
On 1 June at 13.00 the Europe Information, in cooperation with the Åland Islands Peace Institute, arranged a seminar on security policy in the town library of Mariehamn. The lecture was held by Markus Lyra, Under Secretary of State for the Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Nils Daag, Deputy Head of Unit at the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs. Sia Spiliopoulou Åkermark, director of the Åland Islands Peace Institute, acted as discussant.
