In the 2011 Finnish parliamentary elections, the Eurosceptic True Finns became the third largest party in the country’s parliament. As Juha Jokela writes, the election suggested that Finland’s pro-European outlook might be on the verge of hardening. However he argues that in the two years since the election Finland has maintained its pro-EU orientation, with the country’s ‘consensus machinery’ inhibiting the development of a more Eurosceptic Finnish EU policy.
