Baltic Sea region security and the transatlantic relationship in a critical year

Baltic Sea region security and the transatlantic relationship in a critical year

The Swedish Institute of International Affairs (UI) and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace hosted a timely discussion about Baltic Sea region security and the transatlantic relationship in a critical year. The event consists of two sessions.

Fireside chat with Tobias Billström, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Sweden 

Swedish Minister for Foreign Affairs Tobias Billström will provide remarks on Baltic Sea region security and the transatlantic relationship, followed by a fireside conversation with Dan Baer, Senior Vice President for policy research at the Carnegie Endowment in DC. Jakob Hallgren, Director of The Swedish Institute of International Affairs, will deliver introductory remarks. 

The firesida chat is not part of the recorded seminar.

Panel discussion: Cross-Atlantic Currents: 2024 elections and the future of transatlantic security 

The future of European security is on the ballot in 2024. Both in Europe and the U.S. the growing appeal of right-wing candidates and ideologies threaten democratic values and multilateral cooperation. In the United States, voters could elect a President who might turn away from NATO and leave Europeans to support Ukraine and defend themselves. In Europe, the European Parliament may become more right-wing, which could stall EU policy-making, reroute financial resources and embolden national leaders to turn more isolationist.   

In the face of right-wing surges in both Europe and the U.S., how can transatlanticists convey the importance of cooperation? What should European policymakers prioritize in the short term and in the long term to ensure that the outcome of these elections do not undermine support to Ukraine? What can they do in the long term to adapt to structural trends in US politics and put European security and defense on a stable footing? 

Speakers:

Dan Baer, Senior Vice President for Policy Research and Director of the Europe Program, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace 

Ian Bond, Deputy Director, Centre for European Reform   

Anna Wieslander, Director for Northern Europe, Atlantic Council  

Moderator: Sophia Besch, Fellow, Europe Program, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
