Democracies Under Duress: Are We Losing Central Europe?

April 17, 2018 • 11:00 am – 12:00 pm EDT
Central Europe’s reintegration with the West and its commitment to democracy and the rule of law were signature foreign policy achievements in the post-Cold War era for the United States. Increasingly, European and U.S. policymakers question whether Central Europe is really committed to democratic values and principles. Corruption, nativism, anti-Semitism, and weak institutions and civil society contribute to the drift of some NATO and EU members in Central Europe toward illiberalism. Please join us on Tuesday, April 17 for a timely conversation on what policy tools Washington and Brussels can use to address democratic backsliding in Central Europe.

This event is made possible by general support to CSIS.
