House of Governance and Public Policy holds Baltic Business and Public Policy Summit

Resilience and Openness: Private and public challenges in uncertain times?

Public and private decision-makers alike are seeking to handle new environmental uncertainty related to climate and energy, geopolitical change, and digitalization. Firms and societies seek to build resilience—the ability to handle, recover and learn from disturbances. At the same time, the Nordic and Baltic countries have a strong tradition of openness to international markets, equality, and public trust.

Uncertainty exists as to which conditions and practices are most effective for firms and public actors seeking to build organizations and stakeholder collaboration. Does openness facilitate resilience, or can it at times hamper our attempts to build resilience? How can the private and public sector best work together in the context of a contemporary, market-based society?


What is the purpose of the summit? 

The Baltic Business and Public Policy Summit will seek to address some of these issues by combining academic and practitioner perspectives on the collaboration between private and public actors.

Specifically, we will seek to address how the private sector can contribute to societal resilience and how the public sector can help build corporate resilience. We will be focusing on three key areas: Security, productivity, and digitalization.


Baltic Business and Public Policy Summit brings together experts from academia, public policy, and corporate strategy from Finland, Latvia, and Sweden for joint discussions. The event is organized by the Stockholm School of Economics’ House of Governance and Public Policy (GaPP) in collaboration with SSE Executive Education, SSE Riga, and Hanken School of Economics. The event is generously sponsored by Anders Walls Stiftelse.
