This authoritative work examines recent changes in Russia's relations with the EU and NATO and explores the patterns of support for these various orientations among its own elites and public.
- Investigates Russian engagement with the enlarged European Union and NATO.
- Evaluates the serious choices to be made on both sides about the obstacles to good relations, and about the policies to enable a form of Russian 'inclusion without membership'.
- Draws on extensive interviews with Russian decision-makers as well as a body of new survey evidence, official sources and recently published debates.
- Anticipates the issues that will become increasingly prominent, including competition in the 'common neighbourhood' and controversy over the role of values in shaping Russia's future position in Europe.
