Northern Dimension Parliamentary Forum

European Parliament initiated the Northern Dimension Parliamentary Forum as the parliamentary component of the Northern Dimension policy shared by the EU, Russia, Iceland and Norway. The creation of the Forum was based on a European Parliament's resolution on the Future of the Northern Dimension, which underlined the Parliament's support for the establishment of the Northern Dimension Forum and its readiness to play a full part in it, as well as to host the first meeting.

An initial conference took place in 2007, followed in 2009 by the first full Northern Dimension Parliamentary Forum. Both events were hosted by the European Parliament in Brussels, as well as the Fifth Northern Dimension Parliamentary Forum on 22 November 2017.

The Sixth Forum took place on 18-20 November 2020 in Bodø, Norway.
