Finland’s political landscape changed significantly following its parliamentary elections on April 17th. The landslide victory of the EU- and euro-sceptic True Finns Party brought to an end the hegemony long enjoyed by the three main parties with distinctively pro-European sympathies. This EPIN commentary offers insights into the implications of the Finnish elections for both key domestic policies as well as the country’s European policy.
Juha Jokela is Director of the EU Research Programme at the Finnish Institute of International Affairs (FIIA) in Helsinki and Kaisa Korhone is a Researcher in the same programme at FIIA.
