$20 – $30

The Europe Study Group (ESG) presents…

HOW RUSSIA’S INVASION OF UKRAINE TRANSFORMED GERMANY’S FOREGIN, SECURITY AND ENERGY POLICY

27 February 2024, 5:30 pm EST

KPMG Headquarters, Suite 1800, 150 Elgin Street Ottawa, ON K2P 1L4

 

OVERVIEW

Russia’s brutal invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24, 2022 did not prove to be the swift takeover that Moscow had mistakenly expected. Among the many unintended consequences has been the transformation of the foreign, security and energy policy of one of Canada’s closest allies, Germany. This was signalled within days by German Chancellor Scholz.

On the anniversary of his unprecedented ‘Zeitenwende’ or ‘Turning Point’ speech on Feb. 27, 2022, we’ll explore what this means for Germany, for Ukraine, and for Canada.

Join our expert panel of diplomatic, academic and business leaders, as well as an audience of young professionals from across government agencies and departments, Canadian and foreign diplomats, CIC members, students, and interested others.

 

SPEAKERS

Karina Häuslmeier, Deputy Head of Mission at the German Embassy Ottawa

Isabelle Poupart, Director General, European Affairs, Global Affairs Canada

Dr. Achim Hurrelmann, Co-Director of Carleton’s Centre for European Studies
