US-Russian Relations: thinking about the post-Soviet twilight
Bruce P. Jackson, Project on Transitional Democracies; Hudson Institute, US


hosted by Professor Michael Leigh







Mr. Jackson will focus on competing interpretations of Russian politics and foreign policy over the last thirty years and how these interpretations shed light on the deterioration of US-Russian relations. Conflicts between Russia and Georgia and Russia and Ukraine will be discussed, as will the larger picture of the post-Soviet world and Europe. Finally, he will examine how recent changes in US policy and diplomatic manner have contributed to the crisis in US-Russian relations.

Bruce Pitcairn Jackson is Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute and is the founder and President of the Project on Transitional Democracies.

The Project sought to accelerate the pace of reform in post-1989 democracies and advance their integration into western institutions.

From 1979 to 1990, he served in the United States Army as a Military Intelligence Officer and held policy positions concerning nuclear forces and arms control in the Department of Defense. Later he was a strategist for proprietary trading operations at Lehman Brothers and Vice President for Strategy and Planning at Lockheed Martin Corporation.

From 1995 until 2003, he was the President of the US Committee on NATO, a non-profit corporation promoting the expansion of NATO and stronger ties between the U.S. and Europe. Since 2018, Mr. Jackson has been a Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute in Washington, DC. He has written extensively about relations between Russia and Eastern European democracies and the European Union and the United States, the geo-economics of Eastern Europe and the Black Sea region, and European energy security. He has been recognized for his work on democratic change and European integration by the Governments of Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Romania, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.
