In cancelling his planned summit earlier this month with Russian President Vladimir Putin, President Obama suggested it was time to “take a pause, reassess where it is that Russia is going, what our core interests are, and calibrate the relationship.” So how might the U.S.-Russia relationship be calibrated, given core U.S. interests and Russia’s domestic trajectory? Kimberly Marten, Robert Orttung, and Cory Welt will lead a discussion of U.S.-Russia security relations, the nature of Russian foreign policy decision-making, and the impact of Russian domestic developments on U.S.-Russia relations.

Kimberly Marten is the Ann Whitney Olin Professor of Political Science at Barnard College and a member of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences Faculty of Political Science at Columbia University.

Robert Orttung is Associate Research Professor of International Affairs at GW and Co-Editor of the on-line newsletter Russian Analytical Digest.
