Event Description

In one of the biggest crises confronting Europe in 20 years, Ukraine has already lost a part of its key territory to Russia. Moving forward, the proposed scenarios range from diplomatic agreement, to Ukraine’s self-determination, to use of hard power, and even to the division of the country. Having lived through a peaceful separation of Czechoslovakia into two sovereign and prosperous countries, Mr. Lajcak will discuss the issues and impacts that go along with this and other possible solutions. Looking through political, diplomatic and economic lenses, he will closely examine the options the EU as a mediator is currently pursuing to facilitate peace and economic stability in the region We hope you will join us for this stimulating discussion.
