CANCELED: The Rise of Nationalism and Extremism in Europe: A Conversation with Senator Ron Wyden
This event has been canceled.
CSIS is pleased to host Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR), Ranking Member of the Finance Committee, who will provide framing remarks followed by a conversation on the rise of extremism, ethno-nationalism, democratic backsliding, and worsening governance standards in several European NATO members. Over the summer, Senator Wyden traveled to several European countries to witness these implications first-hand and gain perspective from different stakeholders. NATO countries are have struggled to address these challenges which are amplified by Russian malign influence. Despite the many challenges NATO confronts today, perhaps the greatest strategic challenge is the revitalization and strengthening of democracy itself. Senator Wyden will explore what role the U.S. government, and in particular the U.S. Congress, can play in addressing the rise of extremism and nationalism in Europe.
This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
