Friday, Nov. 6: US-Russia Relations after the US Elections: What Can We Expect?

PONARS Eurasia
03 Nov 2020

Join us for a meeting of the New York-Russia Public Policy Forum, co-hosted by the Harriman Institute at Columbia University, the New York University Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia, and PONARS-Eurasia.

In the wake of the US presidential election, please join us for a discussion involving academic and policy perspectives from the US, Russia, and Europe on the future of the bilateral relationship. Is the US election a genuine potential turning point and what priority will the upcoming administration give to relations with Russia? If relations cannot be fully “reset,” then how can they best be managed and what are the main interests of both sides? What are the enduring mutual (mis)perceptions and frames that limit the ability to conduct dialogue and nurture mutual resentment? Is the bilateral relationship still important to the changing international world order, or has it been bypassed by other forms of great power competition and transnational dynamics?
