This is a newsroom ThinkIn. In-person and digital-only tickets are available.
As the death of the Queen dominated global headlines and most of the news schedules in the UK, the war in Ukraine all but disappeared from the media. But as newsfeeds return to normal service, where are we now with the war in Ukraine?¬†
Governments around the world are faced with tackling the consequences of the conflict on their doorstep, including soaring food and energy prices, broken supply chains and frustrated electorates looking for solutions. In the US, support for the war is about to become a political football as the midterms approach in November, and how much longer can the EU maintain a united stance when Hungary is calling for Kyiv to surrender?¬†
Join us for a special ThinkIn where we take stock of the international perspective and geopolitical realities on the war in Ukraine and explore if local and regional pressures are in danger of distracting global support at the time when it needs it the most.
