Open lecture by Andris Razāns, the Ambassador of Latvia in Belgium.

The Ambassador of Latvia Andris Razāns will discuss Latvia’s views on the future of Europe and transatlantic relations as well as the interlinkages between Latvia’s priorities and actions within both, the EU and NATO. The Ambassador will address Russia’s war in Ukraine and what it represents for Europe’s North and Latvia contextualizing the importance of support for Ukraine. The discussion will also touch upon ways of extending support for Ukraine and the difference on perceptions of war between state authorities and the people of Latvia.

This lecture is organized on behalf of the Centre for Russian, International Socio-Political and Economic Studies (CERISE) in co-organization with the Ghent European Law Institute (GELI).

Prof dr. Peter van Elsuwege (Jean Monnet Chair in EU law at Ghent University, Ghent European Law Institute) will moderate this event.
