CERES Conference

Ukraine, Russia and the West—The Way Forward


November 10th
9:00 AM
Copley Formal Lounge

The purpose of this conference is to take stock of where we are in terms of Ukraine’s domestic situation, its relations with the West and with Russia and to discuss how the crisis might be dealt with going forward. The speakers will be a mixture of academics, think tank experts and government officials from the United States, Europe, Ukraine and Russia. The audience will be composed of Georgetown faculty and students, faculty from other local universities, experts from think tanks, representatives from a variety of U.S. governmental organizations and other interested individuals. The goal will be to stimulate a wide-ranging discussion that will have implications both for policy and for a future research agenda.
