Russia and the Shifting Global Order

8 July 2015 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Chatham House, London


Dr Bobo Lo, Associate Fellow, Russia and Eurasia Programme, Chatham House; Author, Russia and the New World Disorder

Chair: James Nixey, Head, Russia and Eurasia Programme, Chatham House



Bobo Lo will explore the problematic interaction between Russian foreign policy and the increasingly complex challenges of global governance. He will argue that there is a tension between the Kremlin’s idealized vision of a global system where Russia plays a leading role by right, and the growing pressure to adapt to a world in rapid and uncertain transition. He will also discuss the practical implications of this tension for Moscow’s relations with the post-Soviet neighbourhood, Asia and the West.

This event marks the launch of the new book Russia and the New World Disorder. Copies will be available for purchase at the event.
