Russia and the West : the consequences of renewed rivalry : highlights from the workshop. : PS73-1/2015-06-02E-PDF

On 19 May 2015, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) hosted a workshop examining various political and security issues related to Russia as part of its Academic Outreach (AO) program. Held under Chatham House rule, the event provided an opportunity for the presenting experts and other participants to reflect on the growing tensions between, on the one hand, Russia, and on the other Western countries and their allies. This workshop attracted renowned researchers from Canada, the Unites States and Europe. The following report contains some of the main workshop findings and reflects the views of those independent experts, not those of CSIS.
