After the Biden-Putin Summit: The State of US-Russia Relations One Year into the Biden Administration
Join us for a meeting of the New York-Russia Public Policy Series, co-hosted by the Harriman Institute at Columbia University and the New York University Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia. Our virtual panel of distinguished academics, practitioners, and commentators will assess the state of US-Russia relations.
Following the June presidential summit in Geneva with Vladimir Putin, US President Joe Biden commented that as “powerful and proud countries” the United States and Russia “share a unique responsibility to manage the relationship” in order to make it “stable and predictable.” What is the state of US-Russia relations following the summit and how successful have Washington and Moscow been in realizing this stated goal of more stable and predictable relations? What has been the impact of global events like the US withdrawal from Afghanistan and the lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic? Does the Russian military build-up near Ukraine augur a period of renewed tension and even conflict? What is the position of each country now towards the domestic political affairs of the other? How successful have the two sides been in finding new areas for possible coordination or cooperation?
