Russia’s actions in Ukraine have sparked new concerns about the security of neighboring countries in the Baltic region. Despite being often grouped together as the Baltic States, these countries hold unique perspectives and face widely differing challenges vis à vis their neighbor to the East. What are the top concerns among the younger generation in the Baltic countries and Finland about their relationship with Russia? How did the war in Ukraine and Russia’s annexation of Crimea affect local attitudes toward Russia, and toward Russian-speaking minorities at home? CGI and the Center for Transatlantic Relations at Johns Hopkins University SAIS invite you to a panel discussion to address the future of Baltic security through the eyes of young professionals from the region. The panel will also consider how young Russians view the current situation and prospects for the future. Amid the current political environment, this panel will explore ways to ease tensions around the Baltic Sea for the broader goal of European security.
