Russia's new Foreign Policy Concept, published in February 2013, provides only a partial glimpse into the Kremlin's foreign policy thinking. The Concept emphasizes some areas of apparent interest, such as Europe, without providing details. The document undoubtedly highlights Russia's aim to be a more prominent actor on the international scene. The aim of this event is to cross-question experienced Russian experts on how, if at all, the new Concept is going to influence Kremlin's foreign policy, in particular Russia's relations with the US, Asia-Pacific and Central Asia.
