The Russian invasion of Ukraine presents a scale of challenges to the political stability in the West unseen since 1945. Deacceleration of economic growth and disturbances in reliable energy supplies are testing alliances, public support of government measures, and loyalty to democratic principles in Europe and beyond.

Join us in the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum on Wednesday, September 21, 2022, as the prime minister of Croatia, Mr. Andrej Plenković, reflects on Croatia's path from its war of independence to becoming a fully integrated member of the EU and NATO. Grzegorz Ekiert (MA '87 PhD '91), director of the Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies, will moderate this conversation.

This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Public Leadership and the Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies.
