This book was published in cooperation with the Department of Strategic Studies of the Swedish National Defence College. Papers published in this book are based on presentations at the conference in Jūrmala in June 1997. Scholars from Sweden, the Baltic states, Russia, Denmark, Poland, Finland, Germany and Belgium took part in this conference. The aim of their discussions was stated by professor Bo Huldt in the Introduction to the book: "The challenge today seems to be how to build in the Baltic Sea region a security community which is also directly connected with the larger community already existing in Western Europe and which we now want also to include the former East."
