European Security: The Baltic Perspective
It has been a century since the Baltic nations of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania first gained their independence. These three countries have emerged since the fall of the Iron Curtain as members of the European Union and NATO and models of successful transition in the post-Soviet sphere. But Russian revanchism since the annexation of Crimea has placed the Baltic region on edge and exposed it as 'NATO's Achilles Heel.'
Just how serious is the Russian threat to the Baltic region and what can be done about it? Join us, The Dagr Group and PS21 for a panel discussion to find out more.
