Power, Politics and Confrontation in Eurasia: Foreign Policy in a Contested Region

9781137523662: Power, Politics and Confrontation in Eurasia: Foreign Policy in a Contested Region
Vom Verlag:

Combining analyses from experts in international relations, foreign policy analysis, and domestic politics across the former USSR, this edited volume helps to unlock a set of intriguing puzzles relating to changing power dynamics in Eurasia. Today, Eurasia combines many of the most potent triggers for conflict: energy resources; weak states; terrorism; great power manoeuvring; social and ethnic fragmentation; terrorism; crime and corruption. What forces are shaping politics, foreign policy and security in the region? Who are the main 'players' and how are they pursuing their interests? In response to these questions, the contributors unpack the relationships between traditional (geopolitical, state-centric and institutional) and new (transnational and ideational) forms of political pressure, and identify the factors that are shaping the expectations and preferences of actors in contemporary Eurasia.
