During the next few months, Prospect will be holding a series of talks and discussions about how the war in Ukraine has changed the world forever and what repercussions there will be for global peace, security and civilisation. Our discussions will cover a wide range of issues including: energy, disinformation, economics, refugees, military security, the re-shaping of Europe and the London oligarchy.
