Please join the Atlantic Council for a discussion of the challenges facing Europe’s East and the strategy required to address them with H.E. Taavi Rõivas, prime minister of the Republic of Estonia.  This event will take place on Wednesday, December 10 from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The vision of a Europe whole, free, and at peace achieved through a strategy of forging new partnerships with Russia, coupled with NATO and European Union (EU) enlargement, has guided the West through the post-Cold War era.  This strategy is no longer viable, underscored by Russian aggression in Ukraine.  As the leader of a NATO ally and EU member state on Europe’s eastern flank, Prime Minister Rõivas will share his assessment of the current situation in Europe’s East and the need for a renewed, sustainable, transatlantic strategy for the region.

Taavi Rõivas has served as the prime minister of the Republic of Estonia since March 2014. Prior to this, he was the minister of social affairs and served as a member of the Riigikogu, Estonia’s parliament.
