Sweden, Finland, Estonia: Short Term Abroad Info Session - Summer

Transatlantic Perspective on Security in Northern Europe (IAFF 6118)

The course is a seminar designed to explore transatlantic perspectives on security issues in Northern Europe in the aftermath of Russia’s seizure of Crimea and support of separatist rebels in Eastern Ukraine.  Governments and societies in Sweden and Finland are reassessing whether non-aligned status serves their national interests.   The Baltic States, NATO members, worry about Russian pressure on their sovereignty, and how to improve their security. Decisions by states bordering the Baltic will be of keen interest to US policymakers and have a direct impact on US security interests.
