WHERE THE REGIONAL MEETS THE GLOBAL: CHANGING PATTERNS OF COOPERATION BETWEEN ‘THE WEST’, RUSSIA AND EURASIA IN THE CONTEXT OF ‘EMERGING POWERS’
When: June 19, 2012, 12:30pm to 19:50pm
Where: The Princess Dashkova Russian Centre, 14 Buccleuch Place,
Edinburgh EH8 9LD
The workshop is organized by BISA Working Group on Russian and Eurasian Security in partnership with the Princess Dashkova Russian Centre. Its aim is to explore the implications of the emergence of China for various aspects of Russian and Eurasian foreign and security policies. Russia’s attempts to position itself as either a rising or (re)emerging power cannot be disentangled from concerns regarding China’s future trajectory at both the regional and global levels. To the extent that Russia must engage with China, due to the shared ‘neighbourhood’ in both Central Asia and the Russian Far East where it borders Northeast Asia/Asia-Pacific, future regional constellations in both Central Asia and the Asia-Pacific will be of key concern.There is no registration fee, but you need to register in order to attend.
