Webinar on-demand: Enlarging NATO: Grave Mistake or Vital Cause?


On Tuesday, July 28th, from 12-1 pm ET, join the Quincy Institute for a virtual panel: “Enlarging NATO: Grave Mistake or Vital Cause?”

Since the end of the Cold War, U.S. presidents have put enlarging NATO at the center of their policy toward Europe. Increasingly, however, enlargement is being questioned by policymakers and analysts in the United States, Europe, and beyond. Three decades on, what were the consequences for the United States, its NATO allies, and states outside the alliance? Launching a new special issue of International Politics, the panelists will debate the costs and benefits of enlargement and ask whether and how the United States should change course going forward.

The panel will feature Alexandra Chinchilla, PhD candidate at the University of Chicago; Rajan Menon, Chair in Political Science at the City College of New York; Sara Moller, Assistant Professor in the School of Diplomacy and International Relations at Seton Hall University; Bill Wohlforth, Professor of Government at Dartmouth College; and moderator Josh Shifrinson, non-resident fellow at the Quincy Institute and Assistant Professor with the Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University.
