A discussion with Ambassador Daniel Baer regarding the impact of the conflict in Ukraine on European security.
As policy-makers and observers grapple with the significance of the Russian challenge to European security posed by the conflict in Ukraine, a number of questions have arisen regarding the European security architecture itself. Ambassador Baer will seek to unpack the answer to questions regarding what a resolution to the Ukraine conflict might look like and mean, and what the long-term impact of the conflict on Russia-European security relations will look like. Even if the conflict in Ukraine ceased tomorrow, how the international community engages with Russia, in particular Putin’s Russia, and the lessons Europe has learnt from the crisis will be of paramount importance.
Dr Daniel Baer, the U.S Representative to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), was sworn in as Ambassador on September 10, 2013. Ambassador Baer served as a Deputy Assistant Secretary for the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor from November 2009 – September 2013. Dr. Baer’s portfolio for the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor included the Office of East Asian Pacific Affairs, the Office of African Affairs, the Office of Multilateral and Global Affairs and the Internet freedom office.
