Join the Center for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies and the University of Warsaw for a joint roundtable featuring experts from Poland to share their insights and perspectives about the war in Ukraine. Poland, a country which in 1989 held its first free and partially democratic elections since World War II, joined NATO in 1999, and the EU in 2004, has strong historical and geographical ties to Ukraine. Poland and Ukraine share a 332 mile (535 kilometer) border, and approximately 2 million Ukrainians were estimated to be living and working in Poland prior to the start of the war. Now, Poland has become the primary refuge for those fleeing the conflict.
During the round table, speakers will discuss the war from security studies and international relations perspectives, as well as giving a firsthand account from the Polish-Ukrainian border. They will share how scholars from the region and near to the front lines understand the reasons behind the war.
