Learning outcomes

Students will have acquired a basic knowledge and understanding of the region's political developments, regionalization and its transnational legacy.


The Baltic Sea Area is often presented as a model region and prime example of new regionalism. This course examines regional dynamics and processes in the BSA from historical and current perspectives. It discusses in what terms the BSA can be defined as a historical region and what its transnational legacy is to the present. Further, the part examines political development and security challenges in the post-Cold War era. In particular it concentrates on the post-Cold War Era regionalism and region-building, from the Council of Baltic Sea States to the EU’s Strategy for the Baltic Sea Area.
