Europe’s Evolving Order and the War in Ukraine
The 14th edition of the Transatlantic Symposium, IAI’s annual Rome forum on transatlantic security, focused on the long-term implications of the Ukraine War for Europe’s security arrangements. The seminar brought together a group of about twenty experts and officials from the US, Europe and Turkey, and encompassed four sessions on major factors capable of shaping Europe’s order: Europe’s push to boost its common defence; Germany’s Zeitenwende; Turkey’s new centrality; and Russia’s future position in Europe. Each session featured a chair and a paper-giver, who started the debate with a short presentation, followed by an open debate. The 2022–23 Transatlantic Symposium was realised thanks to the support of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the US Embassy in Rome and Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo.
