November 1 @ 6:00 pm7:00 pm

Please join us for a roundtable discussion with Dimitar Bechev (UNC-Chapel Hill), Tanya Domi (Columbia SIPA/Harriman Institute), Jasmin Mujanović (Fellow, EastWest Institute), and Srdjan Vucetic (University of Ottawa).

Is Russia threatening to disrupt more than two decades’ of EU and U.S. efforts to promote stability in post-communist Southeast Europe? Politicians and commentators in the West say, “yes.” With rising global anxiety over Russia’s political policies and objectives, the roundtable’s participants will explore more deeply the ascendancy of Russia in the Western Balkans, the geopolitical rivalry that is now engaged with the European Union, the United States, Turkey, new players from the Gulf States, and China. Dimitar Bechev’s new book Rival Power: Russia in SouthEast Europe, will be available for purchase.

From the Harriman Institute.
