Ukraine’s Recovery and Reconstruction


June 13, 2022
10:00am – 11:30am ET

This livestream will feature two panel discussions with current and former leaders in Ukraine, Europe, and the U.S. about Ukraine’s recovery, reconstruction and future reforms, and their implications for the global economy and geopolitics.

Economic leaders in Ukraine, Europe, and the West must contend with practical, political, and policy questions about Ukraine’s future recovery and reconstruction. How will Ukraine transition from a wartime economy to recovery? How will reconstruction be financed? How should the lessons of past reform efforts be integrated? How has the war changed Ukraine’s role in Europe?  What are the broader geopolitical and strategic implications of Russia’s invasion and the future rebuilding of Ukraine?
