What are the causes and political consequences of Putin's decision to invade Ukraine? What are the likely long-term impacts of war between Russia and Ukraine - will the conflict spread, how will it impact alliances, and what are the possible implications for nuclear deterrence? How do Russian disinformation campaigns factor into the current conflict?
On Tuesday, March 1 at 5:30 PM, William & Mary's Global Research Institute convened a panel of experts to discuss "Russia, Ukraine, and the Future of Global Order." From hyper-polarization to disinformation narratives to the uncertain future of alliances, the causes and implications of Putin's invasion warrant scholarly debate. Hear from Steve Hanson (GRI Affiliate and W&M's Vice Provost for Academic and International Affairs), Amy Oakes (Project on International Peace and Security Co-Director and Professor of Government), and AidData Junior Program Manager Lincoln Zaleski '20.
