Leaning into Cooperation: Changes in Icelanders' Perspectives on International Politics after Russia's Invasion of Ukraine

Author: Silja Bára Ómarsdóttir

This report summarizes the main findings of the second iteration of a survey of Icelanders’ attitudes towards foreign affairs and international cooperation. The findings reflect a changed reality, as Russia’s war against Ukraine has shaken belief in the sanctity of borders and respect for international law. The ramifications of this shift have also had an interesting impact on Icelanders’ perspectives, as summarized in this text. The primary conclusion we can draw is that the invasion of Ukraine has demonstrated to our respondents that they must rely on international cooperation to protect their borders and sovereignty.
