The Russian war of aggression on Ukraine puts millions of people’s lives in danger. To find protection, families are forced to leave their homes and flee their country. Every day there are new reports about the catastrophic humanitarian situation inside Ukraine as well as in fragile contexts globally that are impacted by the knock-on effects of the war, e.g. as concerns rising food insecurity and hunger. The world is witnessing death and destruction and massive displacement in Ukraine and across Europe.
But what impact does the war and and escalation of violence between Russia and Ukraine have not only on human suffering in Europe and beyond, but also on the future world order? Especially with the emerging divisions within the EU, it is becoming more and more difficult for humanitarian organisations to help people whose lives and livelihood are shattered by conflict. Will new dependencies and partnerships develop in Europe and the world in the future? What role will international institutions play? Are we entering a post-American world?
The European Council on Foreign Relations, in cooperation with the International Rescue Committee, is pleased to invite you to this panel discussion.
