Global Europe Program
The Global Europe Program addresses vital issues affecting the European continent, US-European relations, and Europe’s ties with the rest of the world. We investigate European approaches to critical global issues: digital transformation, climate, migration, global governance. We also examine Europe’s relations with Russia and Eurasia, China and the Indo-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa. Our program activities cover a wide range of topics, from the role of NATO, the European Union and the OSCE to European energy security, trade disputes, challenges to democracy, and counter-terrorism. The Global Europe Program’s staff, scholars-in-residence, and Global Fellows participate in seminars, policy study groups, and international conferences to provide analytical recommendations to policy makers and the media.

Ukraine in Europe
Ukraine’s future is in Europe and the West. As we look towards cementing Ukraine’s place in the Euro-Atlantic structures, it raises a number of key questions about the future. What will Ukraine bring to Europe’s security structures? How will transatlantic institutions change to bring Ukraine in? What is the timeline for Ukraine’s EU accession? How will Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia and the Western Balkans change the EU? What is the future of Europe’s security architecture and what will that architecture look like 30 years from now?
