The ties that Carl built…

A few quick ones here. Let’s start with Sweden-American relations.

On the occasion of Barack Obama’s visit to Sweden and discussions with the heads of states of Nordic and Baltic countries, I can’t resist to mention this article by David Lindén. The title is pure genius, of course, but the content is important, too. Sweden seems to succeed in organizing strong, profound ties with the US without being a NATO member. Carl Bildt, the current Foreign Minister in a center-right coalition, is widely seen as the architect of these ties. This brings, again, to the fore the dialogue in international relations between wide structures and the action of individuals.
