Formulating a New Foreign Policy Approach toward Russia
Please join us for an important discussion that will assess the new dynamics in Europe’s security landscape and evaluate the challenges of the past year in light of the upcoming one-year anniversary of the Euromaidan revolution in Ukraine. Twenty-three years of policy efforts to integrate Russia into Western structures after the collapse of the Soviet Union have come to an end. The principal challenge to the transatlantic community is to formulate a new and long-term foreign policy approach by directly engaging, for the first time, Poland as well as the Baltic and Central European countries. This conference will address these new challenges, examine the potential impact on the region, particularly within Russia’s neighborhood, and discuss how the United States and Europe can reformulate their foreign policies in order to better understand Russia’s motivations today, predict its future behavior, and ensure the security and stability of Europe. Our expert panelists will address these issues and offer their perspectives on what transatlantic dialogue with Russia will look like in the future, as well as examine the implications of Russia’s actions on the future of the international system.
