Title: Russia: Rising Ambitions, Growing Challenges

Speaker: Dr. Allen C. Lynch

Professor Lynch’s talk will reflect on the growing gap between Russia’s rising ambitions and assertiveness in the international arena, the country’s economic growth, and oil and gas wealth on the one side, and shrinking human and natural resources on the other. He will answer the broader question of whether Russia has the social and economic foundation she needs to maintain her status as a great power in the international arena.

Allen Lynch occupies the Hugh S. & Winifred B. Cumming Memorial Chair in International Affairs in the Department of Politics at the University of Virginia where he also serves as Director of the Center for Russian and East European Studies. He earned his doctorate at Columbia University and is a prolific author whose his most recent book is How Russia is Not Ruled: Reflections on Russian Political Development (Cambridge University Press, 2005).
