The Great Triangular Game: Russia, China, and the USA, Past and Present

October 21, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

On October 21, 2015 please join us for a panel entitled “The Great Triangular Game: Russia, China, and the USA, Past and Present.” As Russia’s tensions with countries to its west have strained, Russia has drawn on historical precedent to pivot to the east. China has been a larger and larger presence in Russian geopolitical and economic thought. To what extent and in what ways is China receptive? What are the foundations of the relationship, and what is that relationship when viewed in wider global perspective? Our panel of experts from Beijing, New York, and St. Petersburg will weigh in during a panel discussion at the Jordan Center, with the support of NYU’s Program in International Relations.



  • Tim Naftali, Associate Clinical Professor of History and Public Service at NYU and Co-Director of NYU’s Center for the United States and the Cold War
