The War in Ukraine, NATO and the Future of European Security Policy

Erfurt Transatlantic Dialogue

Transatlantischer Dialog

Russia's invasion of Ukraine is stress-testing the security architecture in Europe: NATO has been rejuvenated and has brought the United States closer together with their European partners. At the same time, many European states and Germany in particular, have reassessed their national security and defense policies.

Future developments are very difficult to predict due to the dynamic conflict situation. Nevertheless, we want to try and discuss from three perspectives - the U.S., the German, and the Global South - how the war in Ukraine is viewed from different parts of the world, how European security policy is changing, and how the relationship with Russia can be shaped in a long-term perspective. In addition to our experts, you are cordially invited to actively engage in the debate during our "Fish Bowl Discussion."
