Biggest challenge to peace in Europe

The current tensions between Russia and Ukraine pose the biggest challenge to peace in Europe in recent years. The main cause of the conflict is Russian unease with the existing political and security order of Europe and its demand that it be overhauled to accommodate Russia‚Äôs security interests. The West is clearly not willing to yield to the Russian view which it sees menacing and revisionist. This roundtable will bring together experts on European and Russian politics to debate how the gap between the seemingly irreconcilable positions could be narrowed through diplomacy. Our panelists will cover the Russian and Ukraine position, as well consider the role of NATO, US and Germany in the conflict, divisions within Europe as to how to deal with the Russian threat, and European energy dependence on Russia.
