Will USA defend Europe? NATO after course adjustment [COLBY, ŚWIERCZYŃSKI, BARANOWSKI]
NATO has recently taken a long-awaited breath after a period of turbulence, internal tensions and criticism. New challenges and threats have appeared on the horizon, to which the leaders of the member states are trying to respond. From Paris, voices were raised about the need to build the EU’s strategic autonomy, while Washington tried to pivot NATO’s focus to China. The recent NATO summit in Brussels and a series of accompanying meetings confirmed that the alliance is reforming and redefining its goals.
What do these changes mean for Poland? Is our security under threat? Should we be afraid of the Western allies downplaying Russia’s aggressive policy? Or perhaps the West does not count with Poland’s opinion and the NATO decisions are made over our heads?
The invited guests will try to answer these and other questions:
Elbridge Colby (the Marathon Initiative)
Marek Świerczyński (Polityka Insight)
Michał Baranowski (German Marshall Fund)
Public task co-financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland within the grant competition Regional Centre for International Debate 2019-2021.
The online debate will be held on Thursday the 24th of June, 6:00 p.m.
