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. Please contact the workshop organisers by 10 June, 2012 to  express your interest in attending (valentina.feklyunina@ncl.ac.uk,  and natasha.kuhrt@kcl.ac.uk).
