The UK Baltic Study Group is an informal and interdisciplinary forum, meeting annually, to foster greater discussion, collaborative research, interaction with policy practitioners and other non-academic partners and – potentially – joint activities in teaching. Membership of the group is open to UK academics and postgraduates from any discipline with an interest in the Baltic who are conducting research relevant to the area.
