Webinar: “Opinions on Russia: Convergence or Divergence of Views?”, November 30

What are the European views on Russia? Join us for a discussion on
how and why the views among European countries differ

The discussion in this webinar focused on European views on Russia. The publication Russia and the Future of Europe. Views from the Capitals was presented by one of its editors. Thereafter three of the contributing authors joined in the discussion on how and why the views among European countries differ and how they may have changed after the Russian attack on Ukraine. A final question was whether these views have converged or diverged.
