Hanating is a defence and security policy forum held yearly at Hanaholmen.

The event offers a versatile and professional setting for the discussion of complex issues.

During the conferences many new encounters arise between ministers, parliamentarians and researchers; discussions which then take on a further role in society’s debate in the form of journalistic analyses and new defence and security policy initiatives.

”The venue and the format mean that Swedish and Finnish representatives can exchange knowledge and ideas in confidence. A fantastic and beautiful environment allows for in-depth discussions on common challenges,” says the Swedish MP Karin Enström.

“I´m proud of the Finnish-Swedish cooperation and it´s something that can be developed further”, Sweden´s Minister of Defence, Peter Hultqvist says.
