Review Dec 16, 2020

The newest release of the Lithuanian Foreign Policy Review has been published


The Eastern Europe Studies Centre is introducing the latest release of the annual publication Lithuanian Foreign Policy Review. This is now the 39th publication, aiming at highlighting the most pertinent challenges to Lithuanian foreign policy and security.

This year, the Lithuanian Foreign Policy review has no lack of famous names. Two former heads of the Lithuanian and Polish states – Valdas Adamkus and Aleksander Kwaśniewski – discuss Polish-Lithuanian relations and their development. Nobel Prize Laureate Robert Shiller shares his insights on the global economy and the narratives that describe it during the pandemic.

“By attracting such well-known names, we showcase that Lithuania is a prominent participant of international processes and this publication is an excellent platform to discuss the most important topics of the day through concise, acute and well-argued texts,” the publication’s Editor-in-Chief Linas Kojala said.

The publication also features commentary by the Permanent Lithuanian Representative to the United Nations Audra Plepytė on the 75th anniversary of the UN’s founding and its nearest challenges, Vilnius University Institute of International Relations and Political Science lecturer Laurynas Jonavičius‘ overview of political conditions in Belarus, as well as texts from famous international policy experts such as Daniel Fried, Chris Miller and James Sherr on the US’ global role, Russian foreign policy, geopolitical “hotspots” around the world and their impact on the Baltic States.

As per tradition, the Lithuanian Foreign Policy Review has been published with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Lithuania, the Konrad Adenauer Foundation and the US Embassy in Vilnius.
