Arctic Arms Race? Russia, NATO, and Securitization of the High North / Robert English (USC)

February 26 @ 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm
EU Center

Mainstream US media and foreign policy pundits proclaim Russia’s growing threat to the Arctic. Yet the actual military balance in the region is lopsided in favor of the US and NATO. A narrative of looming conflict risks becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy. Professor Robert English is Deputy Director of the School of International Relations at the University of Southern California. At USC since 2001, he previously taught at the Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies (1998-2001) and worked as a policy analyst in the U.S. Department of Defense and Committee for National Security (1982-1987). He holds both a Masters of Public Affairs and a Doctorate in Politics from Princeton University (1982, 1995) and a Bachelors degree in History and Slavic Studies from the University of California, Berkeley (1980). English specializes in Russian and post-Soviet international relations, and also teaches courses on political economy and nationalism in East-Central Europe.
