This multi-day workshop features presentations by scholars and experts from across Canada and the European Union.

Background for the workshop:
Russia’s unprovoked attack on Ukraine has turned into a war that marks the collapse of the European security system as we have known it since the end of World War II. The conflict has challenged the European Union (EU) to reinforce its capacity as a security actor, and to adopt more assertive policies to defend the geopolitical interests of the Union, its Member States, and partner countries. Some of the EU’s responses have required substantial sacrifices, particularly in the field of energy security. The workshop will explore implications of Russia’s war against Ukraine for the European Union and its Member States, as well as for Transatlantic cooperation, with particular attention to Canada’s role.
