As the global community continues to grapple with COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Atlantic Council is open for business. All business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please view a statement from our President and CEO.
An #ACFrontPage event
Atlantic Council Front Page is our premier live ideas platform for global leaders to discuss the defining challenges of our time.
Atlantic Council Front Page is a new virtual event series featuring top newsmakers across multiple digital platforms. Harnessing the convening power and expertise of the Council’s thirteen programs and centers, #ACFrontPage leverages the Council’s capabilities in social media, press, and digital outreach to spotlight the world’s most prominent leaders and the most compelling ideas across sectors and engage new audiences eager for nonpartisan and constructive solutions to current global challenges. This widely promoted program features the Council’s most important guests and content serving as the highlight of our programming each week.
Join the Atlantic Council #ACFrontPage for a conversation with His Excellency Mateusz Morawiecki, Prime Minister of the Republic of Poland, on this critical moment for Poland, Central Europe, and the transatlantic community. We will explore the successes of Poland’s handling of the coronavirus, what this crisis means for Central Europe in the context of the European Union’s post-crisis future, the Polish presidential election, and Poland’s role in the transatlantic relationship.
The Atlantic Council’s Future Europe Initiative is pleased to present this show as part of their mission to inform and influence the response to the global crisis. From publishing timely commentary and analysis across the continent to providing a transatlantic platform for European leaders driving the crisis response, the Atlantic Council is combining foreign policy, economic, and business expertise to help re-imagine the post COVID-19 world.

In the heart of the transatlantic community
Three decades since the end of the Cold War, twenty years since NATO’s first enlargement beyond the Iron Curtain, and fifteen years since European Union and NATO accession, the states of Central Europe remain full and active members of both organizations, and they are key players in the transatlantic community. Foreign influence from Russia and China, concerns over regional adherence to the rule of law, and economic insecurity require continued and renewed US engagement.

After a century of work together, of tragedy and achievement, Central Europe and the United States have much to celebrate and defend, but also much to do.

Macron’s Poland visit makes political sense, but there is another pressing reason: as we enter an era of great power competition, the unity of Europe—and the unity of the transatlantic alliance—is a critical asset, which will be tested. Mending relations between East and West is part of the groundwork to bolster the political resilience of Europe.

The “time is now or never” for Central Europe to grasp Three Seas opportunity, Estonia’s president says
Now that an investment fund to fuel the development of stronger cross-border transportation, energy, and digital infrastructure links in Central and Eastern Europe has been launched, countries in the region “need to quickly decide” whether they want to participate before the opportunity vanishes, according to Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid.
