The Dialogue of Civilizations Research Institute (DOC), the International Institute for Peace (IIP), and the Research Center for Eurasian Studies at the University of Vienna (EURAS) organise an expert roundtable in Vienna on 23 May 2018: “The Deterioration of East-West Relations”.
While in the Far East all signs point to rapprochement and détente, Europeans are increasingly concerned by growing political tensions and confrontations. According to analysts, at times the rhetoric even exceeds the level reached during the Cold War – a time that was until recently thought to be a memory of the past.
The roundtable, which will be followed by a reception organised by the International Institute for Peace (IIP), combines experts and academics from Austria, Russia, Germany, and the US. It will try to identify the real causes of worsening East-West relations and come up with possible ways out of the muddled situation.
