Russia’s unjustified and brutal war in Ukraine has changed the political landscape of Europe in a way unseen since the end of World War II. With the arrival of refugees from Ukraine, its consequences are also felt in Norway. Furthermore, Finland and Sweden have embarked on a path towards NATO membership, and the European Union, in general has become a central force in orchestrating Europe’s overall response vis-à-vis Russian aggression.
What does this mean for EU-Norway relations in the years to come? How can both partners work closely together to address some of the key issues related to the war in Ukraine – as well as other closely intertwined issues that dominate the current bilateral agenda?
