Internasjonal seminar:
Can failing to support Ukraine put Norway at risk?

Seminaret holdes på engelsk.

The war in Ukraine is said to be a warning signal for global security. Lessons from the  past have shown how indifference or minimal support in times of crisis can have far-reaching consequences. Some countries in Europe have started to question the military support to Ukraine, arguing in favour of a diplomatic solution. In this week`s international seminar we ask what consequences a lukewarm support to Ukraine could entail for Norwegian and global security. 

  • How did Russian narratives about Ukraine manifest into reality, and what are the current narratives promoted about NATO countries and beyond?
  • Why is the conflict in Ukraine not just a regional issue but a global concern, posing threats to European stability and international security?
  • How have past conflicts shaped the current geopolitical landscape, and can historical lessons help us understand the implications of the Ukraine crisis for Norway and its allies?
