WEBINAR // Europe and the War in Ukraine
On October 14, 2022 at 11:00am (EST) The Bay Atlantic University and the Global Policy Institute held a timely discussion titled “Europe and the War in Ukraine” via Zoom.
Despite a surprisingly effective Ukraine counteroffensive, the Russian invasion of Ukraine will continue. Europe’s critical financial and military support for Ukraine comes with the heavy burden of skyrocketing energy prices, on account of the interruption of Russian gas and eventually oil supplies. Within Europe, Germany is the key country, owing to its oversized economic and political weight. Will Germany and the rest of Europe endure fantastically high energy prices, indefinitely? Is there a way out of the energy crunch and the negative consequences for the economies and the standard of living, especially for the most vulnerable members of society? Will Europe really deliver on its open-ended pledge to keep supporting Ukraine, whatever it takes? Please join us for a timely conversation with a leading expert on these timely issues.
