How Russia’s War on Ukraine Has Transformed Transatlantic Relations

Together with the North American Studies Program at the University of Bonn, the Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung, and the Deutsch-Kanadische Gesellschaft e.V. we cordially invite you to a lecture on: 


How Russia’s War on Ukraine Has Transformed Transatlantic Relations
Dr. Jana Puglierin, European Council on Foreign Relations 
Tuesday, April 16, 2024 | 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. | Rabinstr. 8 | Seminarroom 8 | 53111 Bonn

Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine has fundamentally reshaped transatlantic relations, laying bare Europe's reliance on the United States for security and exposing the EU's economic and military vulnerabilities. In her lecture, Dr. Puglierin argues that no matter who wins the presidential election in the US Europeans need to urgently build a more balanced transatlantic relationship to be able to protect their own economic and security interests. Relying fully on a distracted and inward-looking America for the most essential element of sovereignty will condemn the nations of Europe to become, at best, geopolitically irrelevant and, at worst, a plaything of superpowers.
Dr. Jana Puglierin is a senior policy fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations and head of its Berlin office since January 2020. Prior to this she worked at the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) and as an adviser for a member of the Bundestag. Between 2003 and 2010, she was researcher and lecturer at the University of Bonn.
This event will be held in English.
This event is part of the Lecture Series "Current Issues in North American and Cultural Studies" of the North American Studies Program.
We cordially thank our partners for their cooperation!
