The New Northern Dimension of the European Neighborhood

Edited by Pami Aalto, Helge Blakkisrud, and Hanna Smith

In the contemporary policy debate on the EU’s neighborhood, grand designs are transforming into more pragmatic considerations. This book examines regional cooperation among the countries of northern Europe, emphasizing the pitfalls and successes of engaging Russia. Drawing from the experiences of northern partnerships, the authors assess prospects for collaborating on energy, transportation, the environment, and public health. They conclude that practical regional cooperation with Russia can prove highly relevant not only for developing the EU’s northern policy but also for working with Russia in general.
