Think Fast: What Now? War in Ukraine and the Global Order

March 2, 2022 @ 6:15 pm - 7:55 pm

Professor Klaus Larres will moderate this discussion among four outstanding UNC expert panelists, alumni and friends. Panelists include: Admiral Dennis Blair, Ambassador Barbara J. Stephenson, Professor Graeme Robertson and Professor Erinn Whittaker (read each of their full bios below).

The panelists will attempt to explain the reasons for Russia’s attack on a sovereign and independent country and assess the likely consequences for the U.S., its allies and partners, and the global order.

The panelists will address issues such as the complex relations between Russia and Ukraine, the nature of Putin’s grievances, the annexation of Crimea in 2014 and the reasons for Ukraine’s increasing closeness to the West. These experts will also look at the attempts by the U.S. and its NATO and EU partners to address and counter Russia’s attacks, assess the impact of the war on the global economy and even the longer-term global order.

We also plan to discuss other important facets such as:

·         What role will China play?
·         Will NATO remain united?
·         What is the world learning about Putin and Russia?

The KRASNO ANALYSIS series of policy papers, edited by Prof. Klaus Larres, has published a number of enlightening papers, which you may find worth reading prior to attending this livestream. Read on.
