NATO, Russia, Ukraine and the New Arms Race


Location: 1050 Jenkins Nanovic Halls (View on map )

Professor Hall Gardner, Chair of the International and Comparative Politics Department at the American University of Paris, will discuss how the Russia-Ukraine conflict has generated geopolitical and military tensions throughout eastern Europe. He will raise the question as to whether it is possible to reach a US-NATO-European rapprochement with Moscow so as to avert a renewed, and more dangerous, arms race.

Professor Gardner is the author of numerous works on global strategy and security issues, most recently, IR Theory, Historical Analogy, and Major Power War (Palgrave Macmillan, 2019); World War Trump: The Risks of America's New Nationalism (Prometheus Books, 2018); and Crimea, Global Rivalry, and the Vengeance of History (Palgrave Macmillan, 2015).
