To Europe’s east, Russia seeks to roll back the gains of the post-Cold War period by rewriting the rules fundamental to Europe’s security.  To the south, the erosion of state authority and borders in the Middle East threatens Europe with mass refugee flows and violent extremism.  At the same time, a loss of strategic purpose challenges Europe’s unity and core values. In response to Russia’s annexation of Crimea in 2014, the Swiss Chairmanship of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) launched the Panel of Eminent Persons on European Security as a Common Project to restore a vision for European security based on inclusive and constructive security dialogue across the Euro-Atlantic and Eurasian regions.
 
Watch live on Friday, May 20 at 10:30 a.m. CT for a discussion with a delegation from the Panel of Eminent Persons and the OSCE Secretary General to discuss the way forward for European security. The Panel members will speak to their findings in Back to Diplomacy: Final Report and Recommendations of the Panel of Eminent Persons on European Security as a Common Project.
