Will a new reset be possible in 2017 that could lift U.S.-Russian relations from their current post-Cold War low? Barack Obama’s reset in 2009 scored early successes, such as the New START Treaty, but the bilateral relationship subsequently turned downward. This lecture by Pifer will explore the key drivers of Russian foreign policy and the implications for U.S. national interests. It will identify potential flash points between the two countries and possible areas for cooperation. It will conclude with recommendations for how Washington might better manage its complex relationship with Moscow.
