FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10

8:30 – 10:30am Panel 4: The Putin Challenge

Chair: Ambassador Eric Edelman, Miller Center

Bush ‘43/Putin/Obama   

Few would disagree: in the twenty-first century, U.S.-Russia relations have remained difficult and even bitter. What explains this spiral of hostility and mistrust? Are the sources of the rivalry a century old, or are there new factors having to do with the consequences of globalization and the shifts in world politics that are pushing the United States and Russia apart?
