Smart Take | Finland Joins NATO Security Alliance
Jason Moyer, Program Associate for the Wilson Center’s Global Europe Program, talks about the symbolism of Finland’s accession to NATO, how Russia’s invasion of Crimea in 2014 strengthened the country’s investment in defense, and what Sweden’s road to NATO membership looks like.
Global Europe Program
The Global Europe Program addresses vital issues affecting the European continent, US-European relations, and Europe’s ties with the rest of the world. We investigate European approaches to critical global issues: digital transformation, climate, migration, global governance. We also examine Europe’s relations with Russia and Eurasia, China and the Indo-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa. Our program activities cover a wide range of topics, from the role of NATO, the European Union and the OSCE to European energy security, trade disputes, challenges to democracy, and counter-terrorism. The Global Europe Program’s staff, scholars-in-residence, and Global Fellows participate in seminars, policy study groups, and international conferences to provide analytical recommendations to policy makers and the media.
