President Joe Biden will inherit an arduous situation in Eastern Europe with ongoing crises in Belarus, Nagorno-Karabakh, Kyrgyzstan, and eastern Ukraine, which is made all the more complicated by these nations’ proximity to Russia. As the new U.S. administration seeks to recommit to multilateralism and transatlantic security to strengthen stability in the region, Sweden’s chairpersonship of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) provides an important partner for the U.S. to collaborate with in the region.
Amid all of these challenges, how can the United States, Sweden, and other members of the OSCE work more effectively together to promote stability throughout the region? Can they forge multilateral approaches and help bring about sustainable diplomatic solutions to long-running conflicts? And is it possible to advance the notion of comprehensive security in the region by linking political and economic security with human rights, the rule of law, and democracy?
Join us for a timely conversation with Swedish Foreign Minister Ann Linde on Sweden’s current foreign policy priorities and goals for the OSCE.
