Powers and Principles: International Leadership in a Shrinking World: Can Russia Be a Responsible Global Stakeholder?
The CSIS Russia and Eurasia Program held a discussion co-hosted with the Hudson Institute and the Stanley Foundation. Andrew Kuchins and Richard Weitz discussed their recent paper on Russia’s changing role in the international system.
What if the major global and regional powers of today’s world came into closer alignment to build a stronger international community and shared approaches to contemporary threats and challenges? The Stanley Foundation has posed that question to 33 top foreign policy analysts in its new project: “Powers and Principles — International Leadership in a Shrinking World.” Looking at the cases of nine powerful nations — as well as a regional union of 27 states and a multinational corporation — the analysts discuss how their given country might deal with the internal and external challenges posed by international norms. Each essay in the series represents an assessment of what is politically possible (and impossible), supported by a description of the associated pressures and incentives.
