The course will analyze and conceptualize sources of international and intra-state conflict and cooperation in and around post-Soviet Eurasia, including the most recent controversy around Ukraine. Its key topics will include U.S.-Russia, EU-Russia, and China-Russia competition and mutual accommodation, strategies of conflict mediation in Eurasia as well as the Eurasian dimension of global arms control. Dilemmas arising from competing institution-building projects in Eurasia championed by the global powers will be considered from the perspectives of both applied analysis and international relations theory. Students will be equipped with an analytical toolkit allowing them to understand and predict the course of conflicts and motives for cooperation among various types of international actors in Eurasia and beyond.
