Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine and Syria has highlighted a systemic clash between Russia and the West. This clash has created a dangerous and unpredictable situation for Europe. NATO responded at the Warsaw Summit in June 2016 by showing a united front and boosting its deterrence capabilities. Six months later, how has the NATO-Russia relationship evolved? What will be the impact on European security of a Trump Administration? Can we expect a rapprochement between the US and Russia and what would this mean for European security? What does this mean for the future of NATO-Russia relations?

The event will be organized with NATO support and in partnership with IAI (Istituto Affari Internazionali)
