— Russia’s annexation of Crimea in 2014 and the ensuing crisis in Ukraine have forced the EU to reevaluate its relations with both Russia and its Eastern neighbors. In his new book, Europe’s Eastern Crisis: The Geopolitics of Asymmetry, Carnegie senior fellow Richard Youngs examines the impact that the Ukraine conflict has had on EU foreign policy—and explains how the EU is developing a distinctive type of geopolitics.
Carnegie Europe is pleased to host a public event with Youngs to debate whether the EU has managed to contain the Eastern crisis—or has set up new conditions for more instability in the future.
