Wetterberg published two articles about a new Nordic union in the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter last autumn. They caused such a stir and attracted so much attention that he has now been asked to elaborate upon his thinking in the yearbook.

On Friday 19 March, the historian will take part in a debate staged in the Danish parliament, where he will account for his ’realistic utopia’ of a Nordic federal state in relation to the Øresund Region.

The meeting is being arranged by the Öresund Committee and the Nordic Region in Focus to mark the 10th anniversary of the Øresund Bridge and the Øresund Region. He will be joined by Cristina Husmark Pehrsson, the Swedish Minister for Nordic Co-operation, and several other politicians and business representatives from the Øresund Region.
