The Ukraine crisis has the potential to create financial instability, an economic slowdown, clashes between states and alliances, and civil disturbances within countries. As the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War approaches, we cannot treat these risks as trivial.

The dangers Ukraine poses for international security, crisis management, and geopolitical balance particularly concern the relations among the Russian Federation, the European Union, and the United States. But the Ukraine crisis also threatens the stability, security, and recovering prosperity of the nations of Central Europe.

These and other issues were the focus of a one-day conference held jointly by the Hudson Institute and the Danube Institute on Thursday, March 13 at Hudson.
