One of the Atlantic Council’s flagship events, the lecture series serves to remind us that much of Europe would not be democratic today without the courageous individuals who rose up in the Gdansk shipyard, beginning a continent-wide movement toward freedom. This year the Geremek Lecture takes place as we witness severe challenges to our most fundamental democratic values in Central and Eastern Europe, most notably Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in response to that country's choice to be guided by the values that underline the transatlantic partnership.
