Co-hosted by the School of Policy and International Affairs (SPIA) and the Cohen Institute for Leadership & Public Service, this conference will take place amidst an ongoing public debate about the Russia challenge and the evolution of what has been for nearly 70 years America’s most critical defense alliance (NATO). Its aim is to enhance an understanding of those challenges.

Our speakers include former diplomats and academics representing Russian, European, Ukrainian, and American perspectives. They will address Russia and Ukraine relations, European relations with Ukraine, Russian-European relations, U.S.-Russian relations, and Euro-Atlantic security. The conference will conclude with a roundtable discussion during which participants will respond to the assertions and conclusions made during other panel sessions.

This event is free and open to the public. No registration is required.
