Should Sweden join NATO? A new poll conducted by Demoskop on behalf of Frivärld shows an increase of support for Swedish membership in NATO. 43.5% of those surveyed answered “Yes” compared to 37% in 2014, with the most dramatic shift occurring among women and red-green voters.

This detailed report explains the varying perceptions surrounding Sweden’s potential NATO membership from people of varying age, gender, and political affiliation. The fundamental arguments for and against Swedish NATO membership are also presented, as well as the most prominent factors concerning Sweden’s security.
