The War in Ukraine and its Consequences for Europe and NATO: A Conversation with Ulf Brunnbauer and Soeren Urbansky

19.09.2022, Podiumsdiskussion, online

Panel Discussion (Hybrid - UC Berkeley Campus and Zoom) | Speakers: Ulf Brunnbauer (Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies, Regensburg); Sören Urbansky (German Historical Institute Washington | Pacific Office Berkeley) (GHI Washington) | Moderators: Jeroen Dewulf (Institute of European Studies) and Akasemi Newsome (Institute of European Studies)

On 24 February 2022, Russian troops invaded Ukraine. Half a year later, the outcome of the ongoing war in Ukraine is still open. What has become clear, however, is that Ukraine is dependent on continuous financial and military support from its European and US allies. This is complicated in turn by Europe's dependency on Russian oil and gas to power its economy. IES invites you for a conversation on the war and its consequences for Europe and NATO with two experts on Russian and Ukrainian history, Ulf Brunnbauer, Director of the Institute for East and Southeast European Studies at the University of Regensburg, and Soeren Urbansky, historian of Russia at the German Historical Institute Washington. This event will be moderated by IES Director Jeroen Dewulf and Associate Director Akasemi Newsome.
