Please join the Atlantic Council’s Eurasia Center and Global Energy Center for a lively debate on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline and its potential implications for the United States and its European allies.Panels I and II will debate the different views on the pipeline from the United States and Europe and address the impact of Nord Stream 2 on European energy security, the political and economic questions associated with the pipeline, and the effects of the pipeline on transit countries in Central and Eastern Europe (e.g., Ukraine).
