Abstract

e Finnish concept for Comprehensive Security (kokonaisturvallisuus) is based on the ideal of participation of all relevant stakeholders, with an aim to ensure preparedness for di erent threats at national level. In this article, we look at what such an approach entails and how the concept of co-creation could be used as a means to enhance its implementation with multiple actors, sectors and scales. Making use of the ideas from systems thinking and cultural-historical activity theory, our research builds on literature review as well as on the analysis of the scenario workshops’ material from the on-going, Strategic Research Council funded Winland project (http://winlandtutkimus. ). We conclude that there are three elements that should be better addressed in the implementation of Comprehensive Security: the impact that global connectedness has for (national) security; the role of di erent actors and their di ering interests – and hence, politics; and the need to look at also actual security practices parallel with the strategy documents and their de nitions. e concept of co-creation – where actors engage in a continuous process to de ne and develop the implementation of Comprehensive Security – can support inclusion of all these elements into the multi-actor implementation of Comprehensive Security.
