On September 21 in Washington, D.C., the Transatlantic Academy (TA) will host the opening conference of its eighth fellowship year.  The conference will examine "U.S. and European Russia Policy:  Toward a Strategy."

Russia's annexation of Crimea and destabilization of eastern Ukraine have challenged the European security order and led to the highest level of tensions between Russia and the West since the end of the Cold War.  This year's TA fellows will examine the various aspects of the Russia challenge and U.S. and European policy options toward Russia and its neighbors, with the aim of helping to formulate a transatlantic strategy.

The opening conference will introduce the fellows and examine the successes and failures of Western strategy toward Russia in the years leading up to the Ukraine crisis, as well as the current policy debates about Russia in Europe and the United States.  Former U.S. diplomat Philip Gordon, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, will be featured as a lunchtime keynote speaker.

Information about registration for the conference is available online.

In philanthropic partnership with several others, in the U.S. and Europe, The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports TA.
