Dr. Bobo Lo will present and discuss his new book 'Russia and the New World Disorder’.
Did Russia’s annexation of Crimea in 2014 reflect the rise of a new and resurgent Russia that has successfully challenged Western liberalism and the post-1989 world order? In his new book Russia and the New World Disorder, Bobo Lo – a renowned scholar of geopolitics – argues that, while true, there is not much that has changed over time in Russia’s skewed vision of itself and its role in the world. However, just as the past world order has become a world disorder, Russia has accelerated its metamorphosis from a collapsing Soviet economy into a major power. Dr. Lo dissects Russia’s foreign policy and the way it is responding to an ever more fluid and uncertain global environment.
You are cordially invited to a book seminar with Dr. Bobo Lo, Associate Fellow with the Russia and Eurasia Programme at Chatham House. After his presentation of Russia and the New Global Disorder, Jan Techau, Director of Carnegie Europe and a leading foreign policy analyst in Brussels, will provide a comment.
Sandwich lunch will be served from 12:00PM
