Conferences


Madeleine and W.W. Keen Butcher History Institute for Teachers (Registration Closed)

  • Saturday – Sunday, October 21 – 22: What is Eurasia? And Why Does it Matter? 
    To what extent is Eurasia a coherent region? What forces have driven its development over time. What led to the Soviet collapse? How did the post-Soviet conflicts unfold? How did Putin’s leadership shape today’s Russia? And finally, what will US relations with Eurasia look like in the coming years? These are the questions that FPRI’s Eurasia History Institute for Teachers will address in October 2017.
