This year’s series will be held in person at the Aspen Meadows.
February 1 – NATO & Ukraine
Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has come under increased scrutiny, not because NATO
troops are involved in the conflict, but because of its role in relations between Russia and its neighbors. Will expanding membership in NATO protect countries, or will it further provoke Russia?
Thursdays from 6:00-8:00 p.m. beginning Thursday, January 18, running through Thursday, March 7 in the Koch Building at the Aspen Institute.
