2022 CENTRAL EUROPE WEEK - A week of hybrid programming highlighting how the United States and Central Europe can together lead in shaping transatlantic responses during times of war and geopolitical crisis, while also underscoring our unique cultural connections.
The direct threat from Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine, coupled with pressure to act on many complex issues including security, climate change, digital transformation, and regional development, have brought Europe to a crossroads. Amid ongoing geopolitical turbulence, energy insecurity, and economic downslide, Central Europe has proven to be a critical voice in the transatlantic partnership. By addressing strategic challenges alongside our Central European partners and allies, the transatlantic community has the opportunity to promote European unity, resilience, and prosperity through impactful collaboration.
