In the first decades after the independence of Finland, macronationalist ideologies experienced a minor boom in public debate and foreign policy. While the young republic was pragmatically searching for foreign recognition and allies in the volatile post-imperial era, idealists presented pan-Turanism as an alternative or a supplement to a Scandinavian orientation.

The presence and activities of this minority influenced some Finnish intellectuals and politicians to view pan-Turanism in a favourable light.
