Taking place immediately after the Vilnius NATO Summit, this event will examine the outcomes of the summit from a US, Polish, and Swedish perspective including views from two analysts visiting Warsaw.

The conversation will cover issues such as whether members are ready to increase the deployment of troops on the eastern flank as outlined last year in Madrid and whether the Alliance will abandon the restrictions in the NATO-Russia Founding Act.

The discussion will also cover NATO membership questions, including whether there will be clear steps taken to fully integrate Ukraine as well as the status of Sweden’s accession.
