International Conference


In recent years, Russia has played an increasingly active and assertive role in world politics. Prominent cases include Russia’s takeover of Crimea and meddling in eastern Ukraine; Russia’s military intervention in Syria and support for the Assad government; Moscow’s alleged interference in the 2016 US presidential elections; Russia’s promotion of new institutional arrangements like the BRICS-led New Development Bank and the Eurasian Economic Union; and the pursuit of closer economic and diplomatic ties with China. This conference brings together a group of international scholars to shed light on the drivers of Russia’s new foreign policy activism.
