Perceptions and misperceptions Achieving global visibility: challenges and perspectives How outsiders perceive the Baltic Sea Region Carsten Schymik, Humboldt University of Berlin:  How outsiders perceive the Baltic Sea Region Carsten Schymik, Humboldt University of Berlin (1) How visible is the Baltic Sea Region… … as a political entity?
