Is the Crisis in Ukraine Pushing Sweden Towards NATO?

The crisis in Ukraine, as well as increased tensions in the Baltic Sea region, has stoked the public debate on security and defense in Sweden. On May 26, the Institute of International Affairs brought Nordic, European, and US perspectives together for a discussion on the future of Swedish defense cooperation and specifically its relationship with NATO. Council Executive Vice President Damon Wilson provided the American perspective. Other speakers included Constanze Stelzenmueller, Senior Transatlantic Fellow at the German Marshall Fund, and Hanna Ojanen, Jean Monnet Professor and Director of the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence on European Politics and European-Russian Relations School of Management at the University of Tampere.
