Anatol Lieven

The Pugwash Lecture: The Ukraine War – A European Tragedy

Hay Festival 2023, 

A year on from the start of the Ukraine War, journalist and policy analyst Anatol Lieven explores the conflicting goals of Russia, the United States and Ukraine, argues that Europe needs to take responsibility for its own security, and looks at ways in which the war might be brought to an end. Lieven’s areas of interest and expertise include Russia and the former Soviet Union, and US political culture and strategy. He has spoken as an expert to the British Parliament, the United States Congress and the French Foreign Ministry, and is currently a visiting professor at King's College London and a senior fellow at the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft in Washington DC. His most recent book is Climate Change and the Nation State: The Case for Nationalism in a Warming World.
