More Putin, but more so? The Russian Presidential election is due in March 2018. Vladimir Putin can stand for re-election for one more term: as we write he has not yet said whether he will but is widely expected to do so. In the run-up to the election he will no doubt seek to maintain by whatever means his grip on popular support, against a background of rapidly evolving events - especially those affecting the Russian economy and global status. And if he succeeds in this and wins emphatically, also as widely expected, he may well feel further empowered to pursue aggressive international policies.
But this still makes a number of assumptions. We are delighted to welcome back Dr Andrew Monaghan to assess possible developments. When he comes to the D Group in November he will have been in his new role at Oxford University for some two months, following his tenure as Russia-watcher at Chatham House, in which role we saw him last. He has also been a Visiting Fellow in the Changing Character of War programme, Pembroke College, Oxford and an Academic Visitor at St Antony’s College, Oxford. He has published the highly acclaimed books The New Politics of Russia: Interpreting Change and Power in Modern Russia: Strategy and Mobilisation.
This is an excellent opportunity to discuss developments in Russia and their global implications with one of the UK's leading experts.
This is a D Group event for members only.
