A panel discussion presented by the Arnold A. Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies, the International Security Concentration (ISP) at the School of International and Public Affairs, and the Harriman Institute.

Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine is the largest act of conventional military aggression on the European continent since World War II. Its conduct raises a host of critical issues for Ukraine and the West. This panel will discuss the military and strategic aspects of this crisis, and their implications for U.S. and other nations’ responses. Please join us to help us all think through this challenging set of problems.
