Please join the Atlantic Council and GLOBSEC for our flagship conference on "The United States and Central Europe: Celebrating Europe Whole and Free, Building the Next Century Together." The event will be held on Tuesday, July 16 and Wednesday, July 17, 2019​​​​​​​at Atlantic Council headquarters (1030 15th Street NW, 12th Floor, Washington, DC 20005). 


In 2019 we mark several anniversaries that helped us build a Europe whole and free with Central European nations an integral part of it, including:

  • one hundred years of relations between the United States and the countries of Central Europe that emerged from the horror of the First World War;
  • thirty years since the overthrow of communism and the fall of the Iron Curtain;
  • twenty years since the first NATO enlargement beyond the Iron Curtain; and
  • fifteen years since the EU enlargement beyond the Iron Curtain and NATO’s “Big Bang” expansion.


Our achievements must be celebrated but many challenges lie ahead. This conference will celebrate US-Central European relations while also galvanizing a community of leaders to strengthen these ties for the future. Furthermore, we will use this opportunity to launch a flagship report on US-Central European relations co-authored by the Atlantic Council and GLOBSEC.
