Ukrainian Ambassador Olexander Motsyk and Lithuanian Ambassador Žygimantas Pavilionis will address the theme of democratic politics under conditions of globalization from an “inside” and “outside” point of view. The conversation will center around questions of what the EU is becoming, how its fiscal, monetary and economic policies and institutions are evolving, how its role as international actor is enhanced (or not) in response to new global challenges, and why, under conditions of globalization, its relationship with the United States remains more important than ever.
Moderated by Alan Berger, retired editorial writer for International Affairs, Boston Globe
