Post-War Europe: How to Rebuild our Security architecture? Hybrid Conference

The war in Ukraine is a game changer that questions the post-Cold War project of a united and converging Euro-Atlantic space. The end of the conflict and the peace settlement require reflection on the contours of a future European security architecture and on solutions for other unresolved crises, such as frozen conflicts.

The settlement of Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine requires a multifaceted approach. However, the global impact of the war in Ukraine contributes to fragment and polarize the international community. It is difficult to consider new negotiations on Europe’s security architecture in the present tense political climate, and without a clear vision of the outcome of the war.

This public event is intended to reflect the debate relating to the challenges resulting from the war in Ukraine and identify a way forward in a volatile European security environment.
