Rethinking U.S. Russia Policy: A Way Forward in the Obama Era


Robert Legvold, Marshall D. Shulman Professor Emeritus, Department of Political Science, Columbia University
In conversation with Dr. Gloria Duffy, President and CEO, The Commonwealth Club


The international context for U.S. policy toward Russia has changed fundamentally from that of the 1990s. Further, Russia itself poses a dramatically different challenge for U.S. policy from that of the 1990s. The combined effect of this dual transformation requires significant adjustments in the U.S. approach toward Russia. Join Duffy and Legvold to discuss a new initiative of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences to formulate a comprehensive, coherent and integrative U.S. policy toward this global superpower.
