How can we prevent great power competition from escalating into open military conflict? In the aftermath of the Biden-Putin Summit, this event will present and discuss principles and policy recommendations for the future of great power competition and strategic stability jointly developed by a working group of Chinese, European, Russian and US-American experts convening in the framework of the Körber Strategic Stability Initiative. What are general principles, low-hanging fruit and more ambitious goals to strengthen strategic stability? Which areas can provide ground for cooperation? How can a global arms race between the United States, China and Russia be managed – and what is Europe’s role in this dynamic?
