“Chris Miller is a rising star in the field of Russian studies,” said FPRI president Alan Luxenberg, “and we are pleased to provide a platform for Chris and other young scholars to shape the discourse on U.S. foreign policy.”
Miller wrote the inaugural articles for the three Black Sea Initiative publications. Why the Black Sea?, the first publication for the Black Sea Strategy Papers series, discusses the importance of a region that most Americans are unfamiliar with. “The geography of the Black Sea matters not only because the region is increasingly at the center of the United States’ foreign policy, but we continue to wrongly see the region as divided into unconnected chunks,” Miller argues.
Miller is available to address community groups and corporations on Russia, Europe, and international economics.
