Finland: Migrants and money (part 2)

This month, we look at the major changes afoot in Finland. A long-standing social democratic culture is now under pressure from right-wing forces. The country’s government is allied with the nationalist "True Finns" party, putting Finland’s traditional pro-European identity to the test. FRANCE 24 meets two young Finnish women, Linda and Carolina, who confront Finnish Members of the European Parliament.

Carolina, a young student and entrepreneur, takes us to discover the "start-up spirit": she takes us to the insurance company she is a consultant for, to a traditional Finnish house turned into a café for young people and to "Startup Sauna", a surprising business incubator. Carolina debates with MEP Miapetra Kumpula-Natri from the Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats.

Chief editor: Caroline de Camaret
