    This paper's focus is on the changing nature of cooperation in Northern Europe, a region that witnessed a dramatic transformation after the Cold War's end and the accession of Nordic neutrals Finland and Sweden to the EU. The paper considers regional cooperation, including new challenges as the Baltic states seek to join both the EU and NATO (while Finland and Sweden remain outside NATO) and the EU's relationship with Russia requires further definition. Particular attention is given to the role of the EU's Nordic member states and the EU itself in the region, especially through the Northern Dimension Initiative, which was introduced by Finland in 1997 and developed by Nordic neighbors Sweden and Denmark during their EU presidencies in 2001 and 2002 respectively. The paper also considers the wider perspective of interactions with non-EU actors, including the United States (and the role of its Northern Europe Initiative), and regional institutions such as the Council of the Baltic Sea States (CBSS). Constructivist and new institutional theories are used to argue that new security identities are being constructed in Europe's North as patterns of interaction change.
