Baltic Sea Strategy Forum

The Baltic Sea Strategy Forum offers opportunities for academics, policy-makers and military representatives to engage in dialogue on the multi-faceted maritime security challenges of a region marked by current challenges to the rules-based order.

Logo Baltic Sea Strategy Forum

The series of workshops and symposia aims to shed light on the role of the maritime domain in its current political and military development, broader geopolitical implications, recognising the risks to the interests of states large and small but also the international political system as a whole. The programme offers ample networking opportunities as well as room for participants' interaction with the speakers.

The inaugural Baltic Sea Strategy Forum was held in Vaasa, Finland, on 30 November 2017. It was followed by the BSSF18 in Copenhagen on 27 September 2018. The next Baltic Sea Strategy Forum will be held in Kiel, Germany, in the fourth quarter of 2019.

The Baltic Sea Strategy Forum series connects to "Kiel Conference 2015: Baltic Sea Focus", an international maritime security conference that ISPK organized together with the Kiel-based Centre of Excellence for Operations in Confined and Shallow Waters (COE CSW).
