DPG Webinar Series: The Ukraine Conflict and Its Strategic Implications

Date: April 20, 2023 | Time : 03:30 pm - 05:30 pm

Event Profile

The Ukraine conflict is now into its second year, and despite its catastrophic humanitarian consequences and devastating economic impact, protagonists are still prioritising military victory over peace negotiations. Risks of escalation to a wider conflict are rising as it becomes existential for both sides. Cooperation on global issues is coming to a standstill.

Whatever the outcome, Europe’s civilisation antagonisms will deepen, and it will radiate instability beyond. Great power rivalries and divisions among nations will intensify.

To assess these issues and related developments, consider the stakes involved and discuss the outlook going forward, the Delhi Policy Group organised a panel discussion on April 20, 2023. The event was live streamed.

The panellists, inter alia, reflected on the following salient issues:
  • The Ukraine Conflict: post one year assessment and outlook.
  • The geo-strategic drivers prolonging the conflict.
  • The costs of delayed peace.
  •  Global realignment of major powers and their spheres of influence.
  •  Impact on Asian and Indo-Pacific stability.
  •  Scenarios for the global power balance.
