Talk: European Security: The Baltic Perspective

It has been a century since the Baltic nations of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania first gained their independence. Suffering the double occupations of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, these three countries have emerged since the fall of the Iron Curtain as members of the European Union and NATO and models of successful transition in the post-Soviet sphere. But Russian revanchism since the annexation of Crimea has placed the Baltic region on edge, and exposed it as 'NATO's Achilles Heel.' Just how serious is the Russian threat to the Baltic region? What is the extent of Russian malign influence in the region? What can be done about it? Join us for a panel discussion from experts and practitioners to find out more.

Doors open at Juju's at 6:00pm and the panel discussion will begin at 6:30pm. The formal program will be followed by Q&A and social hour(s) at the bar.
