This year, the Program on New Approaches to Research and Security in Eurasia (PONARS Eurasia) celebrates its twenty-year anniversary. We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to our policy memo authors, conference participants, readership, staff, The George Washington University, and Carnegie Corporation of New York.
Because this is an anniversary event, we have invited as many of our members as we could muster even though not all will have time to present their policy memos on a panel. We hope, though, that you will seek out the non-presenting authors for conversation at the meeting’s ample coffee breaks.
To facilitate such conversations, and to highlight forthcoming memos, we have included abstracts for the non-presented as well as the presented policy memos in this booklet. We invite you to browse through them to see what is on offer; the entries are organized alphabetically by author’s last name. And of course, please be on the lookout for all of the new policy memos on the PONARS Eurasia website as we publish the final versions in the weeks ahead.
