The US-Russia Relationship: Inevitable Adversaries?

Through interviews with some of the world’s leading experts, both Western and Eastern, we explore the complex relationship between the United States and Russia. Relations between the two countries are at their lowest point since the Cold War with much at stake for them both and the rest of the world. Speaking with historians, experts, and policy makers, we work to gain insights into the relationship between the two countries and to explore how differing perceptions of the past and competing visions of the future have led us to where we are today. We also look at the effects that US-Russia tensions have on key global issues such as nuclear proliferation, counterterrorism, European stability, and the geopolitics of the Middle East and Asia.

Explore historical factors shaping the relationship between the two countries as we ask: where do we go from here?
