The Russia-US Relationship: from Cold War to Cold War II? Closed-Door Roundtable - By Personal and Non-Transferrable Invitation
A closed seminar organized by the Russia/NIS Centre, with Robert LEGVOLD, Marshall D. Shulman Professor Emeritus in the Department of Political Science at Columbia University
Russia-US relations have seen many ups and downs during the post-Soviet period. Since Russia’s annexation of Crimea, some observers even argue that the Cold War is back. Although both countries continue their dialog, the two seem to be talking past each other. The United States has been too quick to rank Russia as only a regional power. Russia, on the other hand, seems to count on the decline of US global influence and American-style democracy.
Analyzing Russia-US relations is particularly opportune in the context of the upcoming elections in United States. Where is this relationship headed? How could it impact key international issues? And what implications will it have for outside partners, and Europe in particular?
