The Russian Attack on Ukraine: Geopolitical Risk – A discussion with Janice Stein


After months of military build up, Russia’s February 24, 2022 invasion of Ukraine represents the largest conventional military attack on a sovereign state in Europe since World War II. The resulting humanitarian disaster, sanctions and other current and potential policy actions have marked the transition to a materially elevated geopolitical and economic risk landscape. As a result, current risk assessments must now contemplate whether this crisis might further escalate to include direct military confrontation between Russia and NATO, large scale forced human migration, heightened cyber risk activity, further disruptions in global trade patterns/supply chains and materially eroded capital markets and economic performance.

Join us for a discussion with Janice Stein who is uniquely positioned to shed light on the historical context for this crisis and, importantly, the potential course of further stakeholder actions and reactions to these developments.
