Belgian Fellow Annie Niessen (UPenn) will start the session by talking about the history of Europe and Ukraine and hypothesize about the inclusion of Ukraine in the European Union. After her talk, Annie will interview the Belgian Ambassador to the US Mr Regibeau (virtually/hybrid) in respect of international relations during his previous position at Ambassador to the Russian Federation. Finally, Christoph Mikulaschek (Harvard) will discuss the potential consequences of the ongoing conflict. Discussion and questions are encouraged.
