BALEX will organise a half-day conference on 23 November 2018 at 2PM-6PM, in Turku, Finland. The event is organised in cooperation with EUSBSR HA Neighbours.

There is a great number of governmental and non-governmental institutions and actors involved in Baltic Sea Area governance and cooperation. However, during recent years, tensions and lack of trust have increased in the region. The cooperation in the region continues despite of the tensions, but the changes have challenged Baltic Sea region actors to find new ways of working and to redefine their role. One of these actors is the Council of the Baltic Sea States, CBSS, that has set up a Vision Group to create recommendations for a vision for the Baltic Sea Region beyond 2020.

The Vision Group paper published in May 2018 creates a framework for the upcoming half-day seminar organised by the Baltic Area Legal Studies (BALEX) competence cluster, in cooperation with EUSBSR HA Neighbours. The purpose of the seminar is to discuss the challenges facing the Baltic Sea area cooperation and especially the CBSS, to share information about the CBSS, and to reflect on future developments, taking into account the Baltic Sea Area governance structures generally.
