German-Nordic-Baltic Forum 2012

On 27th and 28th of September 2012 the fourth German-Nordic-Baltic Forum took place. The conference was entitled “EU Responses to external challenges as seen from Germany, Poland, Nordic and Baltic countries and the EU neigh­bourhood”. Not only experts from the Baltic States, the Nordic States, Poland and Germany partic­i­pated in the forum, but for the first time also scien­tists coming from those countries to which the EU policies are addressed. Thus, a fruitful exchange of ideas and opinions among the stake­holders involved on the contents of the European Neigh­bourhood Policy (ENP) and its perception among the partner states could be achieved.

The expert seminar was organised by the Institut für Europäische Politik (IE) in cooper­ation with the Finnish Institute of Inter­na­tional Affairs (FIIA), Helsinki and took place at the premises of FIIA. The conference was gener­ously supported by the Federal Foreign Office and the Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
