Conference: Ukraine, the West, and the world: Breaking point or transformational moment?
September 15 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am EDT
In a season-opening event on September 15, the Center on the United States and Europe at the Brookings Institution will host a three-part conference to address these issues. The conference will open with a conversation between Oxford historian Timothy Garton Ash, author of the recent book “Homelands: A Personal History of Europe,” and Brookings Senior Fellow Fiona Hill, moderated by The New Yorker’s Susan Glasser, about lessons of the post-Berlin Wall period. Their conversation will be followed by a discussion about the ramifications of the Russia-Ukraine war and the sharpening U.S.-China rivalry for the Euro-Atlantic security order. The event will close with a panel on the resilience of democracies in the face of transformative global disruptions and contested Western hegemony.
