Session 7: Will the Outcome of the Ukrainian Crisis Determine a New Path for Europe and Beyond?

Session 7: Will the Outcome of the Ukrainian Crisis Determine a New Path for Europe and Beyond?

Discussion Topics:

  • How much has the European Order been challenged since the beginning of the crisis in Ukraine? Is there a way back?
  • How much can the gap in leadership influence Europe’s re-evaluation of the collapse of the Soviet Union?
  • Some authors have stated that Putin has effectively ended the most recent period of interregnum and inaugurated a new era in global politics. Do we know what this era will bring?
  • What can we expect from NATO in the post-Wales era?
  • To what extent is the Obama administration being “anti-realist” regarding the Ukraine crisis? Can we speak about the US as a partner in the Ukraine debacle?
