    About the event

    The Russian aggression against Ukraine began at a time when global tension was already running high.

    What will the effects of the war be on relations between the United States and China, a relationship deemed by many to be key to future peace and stability? Will the Chinese leadership continue its de facto backing of Russia?  And will Russia’s leaders accept a subservient relationship to China as a price they have to pay for the war?

    In this talk, Professor Westad will discuss these issues in light of lessons from history. The event is moderated by Ambassador Eric Nelson, Associate Director of the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
