Russia's power game

Historian Dr Gijs Kessler on the development of Russia's power and what it means for us.

The collapse of the Soviet Union was a turning point for Russian influence in the world. Russia's rule of law and democracy have since been crushed under Putin's presidency. Where did it go wrong? And are Russia's attempts to expand its sphere of influence with incursions into Crimea and Ukraine the last convulsions of a world power? With historian Dr Gijs Kessler (International Institute of Social History).

In cooperation with Utrecht University Centre for Global Challenges/Contesting Governance and SIB Utrecht.

On this date we had originally planned "How China takes over" with dr. Jue Wang. That event was moved to September 13th.
