The United States and Europe have maintained an adversarial relationship with Russia since President Putin illegally annexed Crimea and invaded eastern Ukraine in 2014. The U.S.-Russia relationship was further damaged by Russia’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. How can the U.S. work with European partners to develop a new approach toward Russia that pushes back against Putin’s aggression while making progress on vital interests such as arms control and non-proliferation?
Please join the Project on Europe and the Transatlantic Relationship for a discussion with Michael Carpenter, Managing Director of the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement. Faculty Chair Nicholas Burns and Research Director Torrey Taussig will moderate the discussion.
Dr. Carpenter previously served in the Pentagon as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense with responsibility for Russia, Ukraine, Eurasia, the Balkans, and Conventional Arms Control. He also served in the White House as a foreign policy advisor to Vice President Joe Biden as well as on the National Security Council as Director for Russia.
