Konferens Shaping “Zeitenwende”: European Perspectives on the War in Ukraine and a New Security Landscape

25 Aug 2023 09:30 - 25 Aug 2023 11:00
LO-borgen, Barnhusgatan 18, Stockholm

The Russian aggression against Ukraine in February 2022 shook the world and has caused immense suffering and destruction. As a result of the war, Germany, Sweden and Finland radically changed their security and defence doctrines. We are experiencing a historic turning point, which raises questions about how a new European security architecture might look like.

Welcome to a seminar about progressive foreign and security policy.
