New Anthology: Bound Together

The Baltic Sea region is one of the world’s most integrated and interconnected. It is defined both by shared history and common challenges that will shape its future. From cyber security risks and information threats, the Baltic Sea region encapsulates many issues that will define the coming decade.

In the anthology Bound Together: Shared Challenges in the Baltic Sea Region (ed. Katarina Tracz), authors from across the region write about how these issues can be adressed, and what role the Baltic Sea nations can play. They illustrate that the countries in the region are often at the forefront of tackling problems that affect open societies. Thus, they show the way forward for other democracies in the world.
