Black Sea - The Quest for Stability
About this event
The Black Sea region has an increasingly important role in maintaining security and peace in Europe in light of the war in Ukraine. Russia’s aggression brutally reminds us that the modern realities of war and geopolitical relations call for a deeper approach to European security; we must now consider energy and strategic infrastructure security, cybersecurity and societal resilience, and more. The Black Sea region must also muster regional solidarity to begin revitalizing the economy, and building sound security infrastructure, before stability in the area can be achieved. Only then can reconstruction of Ukraine begin. The panel will address the multiple challenges the Black Sea region faces, the future of its security, and its path to stability.
