A year after the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, the Debating Europe series brings together four leading experts to examine to what degree the Russo-Ukrainian War is shifting the geo-political landscape. Although Eastern Ukraine amounts to a small patch of the world’s landmass, the war on this territory has had consequences reaching into every corner of the world. Most commentators agree that this conflict will last many more months if not years. In this debate, our eminent guests will discuss whether there is a military or political end in sight to the conflict; whether it is yet possible to define the contours of an end to the war; whether an escalation remains a possibility; and in what respect this war is reordering geo-politics now and in the future.
Michael Clarke – Fellow at King’s College London
