The Institute for Peace and Diplomacy will host a panel discussion titled ‘Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine: Short- and Long-Term Implications for Canada’ on Monday, March 21, 2022 from 3:00 PM to 4:15 PM EST.

Register for the event here.

The seeming collapse of the European security order following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine raises several questions which may go a long way toward shaping the future of Canadian foreign policy. Will Canada need to contribute more to NATO’s collective defence? Will this distract Ottawa from paying more attention to China? What implications will Russia’s isolation have on the Arctic? How will the US be forced to adjust its grand strategy in response to Putin’s aggression and what implications with this have for Canada? This expert panel will address these and other related questions.

  • Piotr Dutkiewicz: Professor of Political Science, Carleton University; Senior Fellow, Institute for Peace & Diplomacy
  • Andrea Charron: Director, Centre for Defence and Security Studies, University of Manitoba
