8th Annual Baltic Military History Conference
From Narva to NATO: 100 years of Russia versus the West, 1917-2017
Tartu, 23th-24th March 2017
Conveners: Dr. Douglas Ford [Email] and Dr. hab. Zdzislaw Sliwa [Email

2017 marks the centenary of the Russian Revolution, which brought the Bolsheviks into power and laid the foundations for the 70-year Cold War between the Soviet Union and the Western Powers.

As a part of its continued effort to promote a better understanding of the Russian challenge, the Baltic Defence College is pleased to announce the 8th Annual Baltic Military History Conference.

The conference will focus on exploring how lessons from the past can offer a guideline to develop a viable defence policy for the Baltic states and their allies. The College therefore invites academics, researchers and military personnel to contribute to the event in order to enhance the current understanding of the Russian challenge, both within the regional and international contexts.

The exchange of ideas will improve our perception of military history in a broader framework and will also provide an opportunity to discuss them during the follow-on panel sessions. The organisers are open to ideas and recommendations coming from people who are interested in the areas of study within the theme of the conference.
