NEW DATE – March 10: Russia—Design or Deception?

Russia, straddling Europe and Asia and long a conundrum on the world stage, continues to assert its geopolitical influence: reinvigorating Soviet-era alliances, nurturing and financing the nationalist/populist movements sweeping Europe, encouraging Eurosceptic and anti-Islamist movements, and harnessing a global disinformation campaign, all to further its long-held Russian national goals and objectives of empire. This provocative statecraft has been orchestrated by four-time elected president and KGB alumnus, Vladimir Putin. Robert Moser will examine this growing and evolving presence in Russia’s global influence and its implications for U.S. foreign policy.

Robert Moser is a professor in the department of government, University of Texas at Austin. He specializes in the study of Russian politics, electoral systems, political parties, ethnicity and elections, and women’s and minority representation.
