Pub. Dec 13, 2017 Published December 13, 2017

The paper presents a comprehensive set of recommendations regarding the implementation of a common societal security paradigm and a ‘common security culture’, as a base for facilitating collaboration on civil security issues in the Baltic Sea Region. The report constitutes a theoretical foundation and a background for understanding of the recommended actions within PA Secure. However, this theoretical undertaking is interlinked with another process within PA Secure; the formulation of a ‘Joint Position on Enhancing Cooperation in Civil Protection Area’, adopted by the 15th meeting of Directors General in Civil Protection in the Baltic Sea Region, and its annex: the Action Plan suggesting concrete areas for enhanced cooperation – these documents should be understood as complementary to each other.
