25 Years Nordic-Baltic Cooperation

25 Years Nordic-Baltic Cooperation

Monday 26 September 2016 from 14-16 at the Nordic House

In 1991, the three Baltic countries, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, regained their independence following the democratic wave that swept across the region. Today, 25 years later, the Nordic-Baltic cooperation is a well-established priority for all the states in question.
