A New Transatlantic Strategy on Russia

Thu., Apr. 30, 2020 | 12:00pm - 1:30pm

Online

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.

How People and Countries around the World Are Coping with Coronavirus

Tue., Apr. 28, 2020 | 8:30am - 10:00am

Online

As the novel coronavirus spreads around the world, people are responding to the onslaught in similar ways—social distancing, working from home, panic buying at grocery stores. But people in different countries are also weathering this crisis in different ways; for example, they are finding different products to hoard, different ways to pass the time, different people to blame, and even different things to worry about. Project on Europe Fellow Amanda Sloat will discuss the results of her mid-March research into these trends, as well as the numerous policy questions that have arisen in subsequent weeks. Executive Director, Cathryn Cluver Ashbrook will moderate the discussion.
