Event Overview

By: Amelia Martin

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine rapidly altered the security landscape in Europe, particularly for Finland and Sweden. Both nations are now positioning to join the NATO alliance, a move that would have major implications for security in Northern Europe and end decades of military non-alignment for both countries, reshaping the region’s geopolitics. How might these developments impact transatlantic security, relations with Russia, and the war in Ukraine?
