The research project 'Prospects of Swedish entry into NATO' conducted by Anastasia Shcherbaneva, Faculty of International Relations of St. Petersburg State University, was dedicated to the security policy of Sweden and the perspectives of Russian-Swedish relations. The research was aimed at understanding Sweden’s concept of neutrality and determining the tendencies in Sweden’s defence policy based on the ongoing debate on the possibility of the countries joining the Alliance. Support from the CGES allowed Anastasia to meet and interview experts, scholars, journalists, and public officials, whose answers were analyzed as part of the CGES working paper prepared by Anastasia.
