The United Nordic Federation

The Nordic Region 2030: The five Nordic countries have formed a federal political entity – the United Nordic Federation. The new federation, with its joint constitution, joint government and population of 25 million, is a brand-new and major player on the European stage – well it would be if the countries have the courage to make it happen. The controversial historian Gunnar Wetterberg provides objective and detailed arguments for a new Nordic federation. A real federation, with responsibility for foreign and defence policy, the economic framework and all of the key legislative areas, from immigration to social policy. Last year, Wetterberg breathed new life into the debate about the rebirth of the Kalmar Union. The emotional, hard-hitting debate resonated all the way to Germany, Spain and Italy. He now presents his vision of the United Nordic Federation in theNordic Council and Nordic Council of Ministers’ Yearbook 2010. His highly controversial proposal is expected to reignite the debate in all five of the Nordic countries.

The first arena in which an integrated Region would make a major impact would be foreign and security policy. The Federation would wield far greater influence on decisions than the individual countries.
