Working Papers “Forging Western Consensus on Eastern Policy”
An ongoing series of informal papers co-published with Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Transatlantic Relations
The DGAP shares the first informal think pieces in a series on transatlantic policy toward Russia, with texts by Andrew Kuchins, John Herbst, Sergei Guriev, Marie Mendras, Donald N. Jensen, among others. The drafts were prepared for the Center for Transatlantic Relations at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) at Johns Hopkins University in collaboration with the DGAP’s program on Eastern Europe, Russia, and Central Asia at the DGAP’s Robert Bosch Center.
These drafts are part of an ongoing collaboration between the Center for Transatlantic Relations at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) at Johns Hopkins and the DGAP’s program on Eastern Europe, Russia, and Central Asia at the DGAP’s Robert Bosch Center for Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, and Central Asia.
The Center for Transatlantic Relations and the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP), together with the Robert Bosch Foundation, have launched this initiative to recommend ways to build Western consensus on policy toward Russia and the other countries of the post-Soviet realm. The project includes high level seminars in Washington and European capitals, study trips and analysis.
