The departure of the UK and re-activation of the Franco-German tandem have pushed the six Nordic-Baltic member states (NB6) to seek closer cooperation in the EU framework. In addition, the NB6 together with the Netherlands and Ireland have come forward with shared positions regarding the reform of the eurozone, counterbalancing the southern European positions. However, regional cooperation behind the flashy label of “Hanseatic League 2.0” is informal and selective, while important differences remain among the EU policies of the NB6 countries.
