MW Lecture with Prof. Valerie J. Bunce (Cornell University) - Tit-for-Tat: The U.S.-Russian Game of Weaponizing Elections

Dates:
  • Wed 16 Oct 2019 17.00 - 18.30
  Add to Calendar 2019-10-16 17:00 2019-10-16 18:30 Europe/Paris MW Lecture with Prof. Valerie J. Bunce (Cornell University) - Tit-for-Tat: The U.S.-Russian Game of Weaponizing Elections

Russian intervention in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election, along with the Russian invasion and de-stabilization of Ukraine, beginning in 2014, were responses to repeated U.S. electoral interventions in Russia’s neighborhood. This two-person game of electoral tit-for-tat shared similar goals, such as de-stabilizing the other country, supporting the election of more friendly leaders and laying some groundwork for regime change. The weaponization of elections undermines democracy, supports growing authoritarianism and undermines international alliances.

Tamara Popic (MW SPS Fellow) will introduce and chair the Lecture.
