Central and Eastern Europe’s Security: Facing Russian Threats  November 4, 2021 CEVRO Institute, Jungmannova 28/17, Prague, Czech Republic Geopolitics is back. Since 2014 our region has been again confronted with the political instability at its borders, the incertitude created by the tectonic processes in global politics and economy, and the rise of new security threats. One of the reactions to those processes is strengthening cooperation in the CEE region, represented by initiatives such as Trimarium or Bucharest Nine. The conference aims at discussing from the Czech and Polish perspectives two critical dimensions of our security today: the strengthening of the North-South infrastructural axis with particular attention to energy security and, secondly, the stability of our eastern neighborhood. 14:00 – 15:30 North-South Axis.
