Perry World House Workshop: April 14, 2022 The Global Order After Russia's Invasion of Ukraine

On April 14, 2022, seven weeks into the Russian Federation’s most recent invasion of Ukraine, Perry World House hosted a workshop with policymakers, academics, and current and former government officials on "The Global Order after Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine."

The workshop focused on the invasion's effects in four domains: Ukrainian and Russian politics and economics; global economics; NATO and the EU; and the Indo-Pacific. All of the major issues affecting Ukraine, Russia, and the international community are reflected in the priorities of the Global Order research theme at Perry World House, as Russia’s invasion of its neighbor will have ramifications for the future of international governance structures, changing power dynamics, the deployment of new technologies in conflict, and more.

Given the changing nature of the conflict in Ukraine, this workshop report provides actionable policy recommendations that were discussed and debated throughout the event, including increasing weapons deliveries to Ukraine, accelerating the use of digital currency, ending European dependence on Russian energy, and developing a "Marshall Plan" for Ukraine's agricultural sector. It aims to serve as a guide for how various stakeholders— especially the United States, EU, and NATO—can bring an end to the conflict, as well as providing recommendations for the Ukrainian government.
