Go behind the issues

The brief provides insight into the big issues affecting Finland and is designed as a resource to understand the complexities and subtleties of the country while keeping on top of the latest policy news.

Published once a month, the review offers analysis of the topics that shape the political- and economic climate in Finland i.a. national politics, economy, security- and defence, energy, social developments and geo-political issues affecting Finland. Our insightful analytical reports give you the opportunity to understand not just outcomes but also the forces in Finnish policy-making that drive those outcomes. This means that each article is carefully researched and cross-checked across a variety of sources, including through personal contacts that we maintain.

  1. A full-page calendar of upcoming Finnish and international events over the next three months
  2. Policy news
