Finland, Sweden & NATO – Did Trump Change Everything?

On Wednesday 14 February 2018, 10:00-12:00
At G18, Yrjönkatu 18, Helsinki
Since 1994, Finland and Sweden have been partners with NATO but never applied membership in the Alliance. For most European countries, membership both in the EU and NATO go hand-in-hand. Only 31 million, or 6 %, of EU citizens live in a non-NATO country.
For Europeans and Americans to better understand NATO debate, we have produced this publication: “Finland, Sweden & NATO – Did Trump Change Everything?”. We also want to examine if Donald Trump’s one-year-long presidency has affected the NATO debate in Finland and Sweden.
Opening remarks:
Stefan Wallin, Member of the Finnish Parliament and Former Defence Minister
Keynote speeches:

Anna Kronlund, Post-Doctoral Researcher, John Morton Center for North American Studies at the University of Turku


Magnus Christiansson, Postgraduate Researcher, Swedish Defence University and University of Stockholm


Andras Simonyí, Managing Director, Center for Transatlantic Relations, Washington D.C.




Mats Löfström, Member of the Finnish Parliament
