As EU countries struggle to define their security strategy following the Trump administration's "transatlantic chill", the future of NATO and EU membership in its key areas of expansion in Ukraine and the Balkans has become increasingly uncertain. The increasing influence of authoritarian neighbors such as Turkey and Russia coupled with rising anti-establishment and far-right sentiments do not bode well for stability in this part of the world.

Speaker:
Una Hajdari, a freelance print and broadcast journalist from Prishtina, Kosovo, who is currently in residence at the MIT Center for International Studies as the International Women’s Media Foundation's Elizabeth Neuffer Fellow.

Discussant:
Elizabeth Wood, professor of history at MIT, is the author of three books, Roots of Russia’s War in Ukraine; Performing Justice: Agitation Trials in Early Soviet Russia; and The Baba and the Comrade: Gender and Politics in Revolutionary Russia.

Co-sponsors:  MIT Center for International Studies
