• Sphere of Influence: Russia's Foreign Policy - Full Episode

    Ukrainians took to the streets in in November 2013. As the movement later known as the Euromaidan, or “Euro Square,” pulled western Ukraine closer to its European neighbors, another powerful force threatened to tear away the country’s eastern half: Russia. Putin’s pushback against European expansionism has the West wondering: If Putin’s Russia isn’t afraid to take an aggressive stance against Europeanization in Ukraine, what does that mean for the rest of Russia’s neighbors?

    In recent years, Russia's foreign policy has become considerably more asserting, posing a challenge to the United States and its Western allies. In his presentation, Igor Zevelev, a fellow at the Kennan Institute and a former visiting fellow at CSIS, will explore what is driving this shift from the Russian side. He will outline the ways in which Russian foreign policy doctrine today stems primarily from domestic ideas about Russian identity and the reasons why the impact of such thinking has become such a driving force in the past four years.

Despite ongoing differences over Ukraine, NATO and Russia appear to have common interests in Syria and the battle against ISIL. Cooperation or confrontation? That's the big question facing European and American diplomats as Russian foreign policy sparks often contradictory reactions.

    The current downturn in Russia’s relationship with the West has prompted Russian officials and scholars to openly call for "new rules” for global politics. Western sanctions on Russia for its actions in Ukraine have prompted the Kremlin’s counter-sanctions and Moscow's public “pivot to the Asia-Pacific,” designed to reinforce the notion that Russia is a global power and an important player in a multipolar world order. How sustainable is Russia’s international revisionism and what are the implications for its relationship with the West? Is current Russian foreign policy orientation the result of the leadership of President Vladimir Putin and his inner circle, or has Russia made a decisive break from the West? How important are factors like social status and prestige in Russia’s current ...

We can make big mistakes, and I think Russia made a big mistake last year in Ukraine,” said Voigt. Not acting like a big power and making decisions with the presence of smaller nations and acknowledging their interests, has been fundamental in German foreign policy since World War II, according to Voigt.

The current downturn in Russia’s relationship with the West has prompted Russian officials and scholars to openly call for "new rules” for global politics. Western sanctions on Russia for its actions in Ukraine have prompted the Kremlin’s counter-sanctions and Moscow's public “pivot to the Asia-Pacific,” designed to reinforce the notion that Russia is a global power and an important player in a multipolar world order. How sustainable is Russia’s international revisionism and what are the implications for its relationship with the West? Is current Russian foreign policy orientation the result of the leadership of President Vladimir Putin and his inner circle, or has Russia made a decisive break from the West? How important are factors like social status and prestige in Russia’s current foreign policy identity? And is Russia’s public strategic partnership with China still an “axis of convenience,” or will it deepen to form a counter-Western pole designed to challenge Western-led security and global governance architectures? Our panel brings together distinguished experts of Russian foreign policy from the academic and policy-making communities to discuss these issues. Bobo Lo is an independent analyst. He was previously Director of the China and Russia Programmes at the Centre for European Reform; Head of the Russia and Eurasia Programme at Chatham House; and Deputy Head of Mission at the Australian Embassy in Moscow. He is an Associate Research Fellow with the Russie/NEI programme of the French Institute of International Relations (IFRI). Dr Lo writes extensively on Russian foreign policy. His latest book, Russia and the New World Disorder (Brookings and Chatham House, 2015), was short-listed for the 2016 Pushkin House prize, and described by The Economist as ‘the best attempt yet to explain Russia’s unhappy relationship with the rest of the world.’ Previously, Foreign Affairs called Lo’s Axis of Convenience: Moscow, Beijing and the New Geopolitics ‘the best analysis yet of one of the world’s most important bilateral relationships.’ Bobo Lo has an MA from Oxford and a PhD from the University of Melbourne. Ted Hopf is the Provost Chair Professor of Political Science at National University of Singapore. In addition to articles published in American Political Science Review, European Journal of International Relations, International Organization, Review of International Studies, Security Studies and International Security, and numerous book chapters, he has edited or authored six books. His most recent book, Reconstructing the Cold War: The Early Years, 1945-1958 (Oxford 2012), won the 2013 American Political Science Association Robert Jervis-Paul Schroeder Award for Best Book in International Relations and History and the 2013 Marshall D. Shulman Award, presented by the Association of Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies for the best book published that year on the international politics of the former Soviet Union and Central Europe. His research has been supported by the Ministry of Education of Singapore, The Mershon Center, the Ford Foundation, the American Council for Learned Societies, and the Olin and Davis Centers at Harvard University. Fiona Hill is director of the Center on the United States and Europe and a senior fellow in the Foreign Policy program at the Brookings Institution. From 2006 to 2009, she served as national intelligence officer for Russia and Eurasia at The National Intelligence Council. She is a frequent commentator on Russian and Eurasian affairs, and has researched and published extensively on issues related to Russia, the Caucasus, Central Asia, regional conflicts, energy, and strategic issues. She is co-author of the second edition of Mr. Putin: Operative in the Kremlin (Brookings Institution Press, 2015).

Karsten Voigt, who is a member of the Board of the German Council on Foreign Relations and the Social Democratic Party of Germany was a panelist for the conference, "Russia in Global Politics - Driving Values and Interests." Co-hosted by CEU’s Center for EU Enlargement Studies (CENS) and the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung Budapest, the April 20 event was part of CEU’s Frontiers of Democracy series. “Russia and Germany have much in common. We can make big mistakes, and I think Russia made a big mistake last year in Ukraine,” said Voigt. Not acting like a big power and making decisions with the presence of smaller nations and acknowledging their interests, has been fundamental in German foreign policy since World War II, according to Voigt. Therefore, Germany will not negotiate on the future of Ukraine with Russia “above the heads of Ukrainians.”
