The feeling of insecurity among Finns has increased with people expressing concern at issues such as climate change, influx of refugees, and terrorist attacks, which have had increasing influence on the country.
 
The matters pertaining to security and insecurity were discussed at a symposium in Mikkeli on Thursday.
 
“According to statistics, Finland is one of the world’s safest countries. At the same time, the security environment has changed more radically than ever in times of peace,” said National Police Commissioner Seppo Kolehmainen in his speech.
 
Kolehmainen believes that the sense of insecurity stems from, among other things, an aging population, robberies and other crimes, as well as the increase in the number of asylum seekers.
 
Kolehmainen also pointed out that violent extremist thinking stems from unemployment and the feeling of isolation.
