Please join the IISS-Americas for the launch of the latest IISS Adelphi book, Everyone Loses: The Ukraine Crisis and the Ruinous Contest for Post-Soviet Eurasia.

This event will take place on Thursday, January 12, from 9:00-10:00am.

It will be chaired by IISS-Americas Executive Director Mark Fitzpatrick. Following 15 minutes of remarks by each speaker, there will be 30 minutes of audience Q&A.

Disorder erupted in Ukraine in 2014, involving the overthrow of a sitting government, the Russian annexation of the Crimean peninsula, and a violent insurrection, supported by Moscow, in the east of the country. This crisis has yielded a ruinous outcome, in which all the parties are worse off and international security has deteriorated. The upshot has been systematic losses for Russia, the West, and the countries caught in between.

In this new book, Samuel Charap and Timothy J. Colton examine the roots of the Ukraine crisis, offering a coherent narrative of Western and Russian policies in post-Soviet Eurasia since 1991 and providing a balanced assessment of both Russia and the West’s actions post-2014. They argue that all governments involved must recognize the failure of current policies and commit to finding mutually acceptable alternatives.

Copies of Everyone Loses will be available for purchase at the event for 20% off the list price (25% for IISS members). The book can be pre-ordered online by clicking here:
