Distinguished Speaker Series:
Founded in the the aftermath of WWII, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization was initially a part of an effort by the US and its European allies to deter any expansion of the then-Soviet Union and reduce the possibility of further conflict in Europe. In the 70 years since its founding, NATO has increased its membership to include many central and Eastern European countries after the collapse of the Soviet Union, an expansion central to the current Russian invasion into Ukraine. How have the events in Ukraine affected NATO’s ability to protect its stakeholders (member states and allies) and what can be done to strengthen this ability in its operations worldwide?
Join us in-person at the Chateau Bellevue on June 1, 2022 for this Distinguished Speaker Series luncheon featuring insights from Marla Keenan, an Adjunct Senior Fellow at the Stimson Center and a Senior International Security Fellow at New America.
