The panel will discuss the establishment of the Baltic States in the post-WW I world from the perspective of international politics of the period. While the perspectives of the major powers (Germany, United Kingdom, France, Russia, and United States) differed, we will address some of the common features, as well as difference, in their views and policies toward the Baltic States.
