NTI Co-Sponsors Dialogue on Euro-Atlantic Security in Sofia

In recent years, historical animosities and uncertainties in the global security landscape have hindered efforts to develop a fresh approach to Euro-Atlantic security. The crisis in Ukraine has exacerbated the problem, further undermining cooperation, increasing tensions and widening differences on a host of security, political, economic and other issues.
To address the crisis and engage a new generation of analysts and problem-solvers, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, the European Leadership Network (ELN), the Munich Security Conference, the Nuclear Threat Initiative and the Russian International Affairs Council (RIAC) have formed a younger generation Track II task force to focus on Euro-Atlantic security. Over a series of meetings throughout the region, the task force will explore a set of immediate and longer-term steps toward greater Euro-Atlantic security. 
On October 27-29, the group will meet for the first time in Sofia, Bulgaria, and the meeting will focus on Ukraine. Participants include a diverse group of young leaders from Ukraine and their counterparts from Europe, Russia and the United States who will share their perspectives on the future of Ukraine and Euro-Atlantic security. Participation is by invitation only.
This event is inspired by the experience and advice of Munich Security Conference Chairman Wolfgang Ischinger who co-chaired the first national dialogue in Ukraine earlier this year. The project is an outcome of the Building Mutual Security dialogue, co-sponsored by ELN, the Munich Security Conference and RIAC.
