The Nordic Model and the Middle East
Almedalsveckan: The conflict between Israel and Palestine is still unresolved almost 30 years after the Oslo Accords.
Can Nordic models like the Åland example and the two national language solution in Finland be a model for a future democratic one-state solution for Israel-Palestine?
Now while the world is focusing on the Russian war in Ukraine, the conflict between Israel and Palestine is still unresolved. Almost 30 years after the Oslo Accords there is still no constructive solution in sight. How has Sweden and Finland actively tried to solve the conflict in the past? Can the Åland Example and the two national language solution in Finland be a model for a future democratic one-state solution? Are there other constructive ideas from a Swedish and Finnish perspectives we can utilize?
