Please join the Institute for International Relations in cooperation with Columbia Athens Global Center and the Harriman Institute for a public hybrid event, Western support for Ukraine one year after Russia’s war: International influences and domestic trends in the US and Europe.

Over a year following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, we see continued Western unity in support for Ukraine, including sustaining economic sanctions on Russia, providing Kyiv with security assistance, helping Ukrainian refugees and making necessary economic adjustments to detach from dependence on Russian energy. But how stable is domestic public support for Ukraine across the European Union and the United States, especially given the war’s current military stalemate and growing calls for a negotiated settlement? What is the role of domestic politics, economic factors, media coverage and disinformation on Western public opinion? Please join a group of distinguished academic researchers and policy officials convened by IDIS in cooperation with Columbia University’s Harriman Institute and the Columbia Athens Global Center to discuss the current state of affairs and assess likely future trends.
