Learning outcomes

The students become familiar with the Baltic Sea region and region-building from historical, political, geographical, economic and cultural perspectives. They understand how the region has been formed and learn about different ways of defining the region. They will know the central features and particularities of the Baltic Sea Region, its countries and peoples, and understand the unique historical trajectory behind the development of the region. They will also gain an insight on the current state of the region and the most topical challenges it faces.

General description

Course will introduce the processes of regionalization and various phenomena contributing towards region-building in the Baltic Sea region. These processes and phenomena are examined from historical, political, geographical, economic and cultural perspectives. Students are presented with an overall portrayal of the political, economic, social, military and ecological developments in the region from the Viking era to the current day realities. In the context of regionalization, various transnational interactions, cultural transfers, regional commonalities and shared traditions will be discussed. Special emphasis is given to the post-Cold war years as the Golden era of Baltic Sea regionalization.
