The current US administration hoped to build a new relationship with Russia. Instead, tensions have increased. US intelligence agencies have reported that Russia interfered in the US presidential election. Experts believe Russian influence operations will next target Germany. Russia’s Zapad war games in eastern Europe have further increased suspicions of Russian intentions. ** Where is the relationship between western nations and Russia headed? ** This symposium, organized by the Canadian Association for Security and Intelligence Studies (CASIS), draws on internationally known commentators to examine the current international context, Russian influence operations, Russian domestic politics, Russia’s intervention in Ukraine, Russian military and security services, and US and Canadian foreign policy. The symposium will interest everyone who takes an active interest in international affairs. ** Friday, 29 September 2017 ** 8:15 AM – 5:00 PM EDT Canadian War Museum
