Sweden holds general elections on 11 September 2022. The country has been witnessing two parallel security challenges and debates: internal and external. The former encompasses gang wars and one of the highest murder rates in Europe, the latter addresses a radical turn in its foreign policy: from neutrality to NATO membership. While the former is often related to Sweden’s difficulties in integrating different flows of migrants and refugees, the latter results from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Which issues are of primary concerns for the voters and politicians?
Brief presentations followed by a live Q@A.
Austria-based journalists, thinktank analysts and academics. International media and analysts are welcome.
