A Consensus Proposal for a Revised Regional Order
Join the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) for a talk on a new report put out by representatives from the West, Russia and the states in between on the regional order in post-Soviet Europe and Eurasia.
Disputes over the regional order in post-Soviet Europe and Eurasia are at the core of the breakdown in Russia-West relations, and have created major security and economic challenges for the states caught in between: first and foremost Ukraine, but also Belarus, Moldova, Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan. Current policy approaches toward the regional order—i.e., the set of rules, norms and institutions that govern the region—have exacerbated today’s disorder and instability. The authors of a new report offer a comprehensive proposal for revising the regional order. The proposal, which addresses the security architecture, economic integration and regional conflicts, was devised by four groups of experts convened by the RAND Corporation and the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung’s Regional Office for Cooperation and Peace in Europe. Each group included representatives from the West, Russia and the states in between.
Registration is required, and information can be found on the event page.
