“KEY TRENDS IN RUSSIAN FOREIGN POLICY AND THREAT PERCEPTION IN THE 21ST CENTURY”
MR. MATHIEU BOULEGE (in immaculate English)
Russia is acting as a judge, jury and executioner of the current rules-based, Western– led international order. The talk will explore Moscow’s real and imagined security and threat perceptions as well as address the role of internal factors in Russian foreign policy trajectories. From the place of international sanctions to ‘hybrid warfare’ , the talk will also seek to demystify misconceptions around Russia’s posture against the West and beyond.
Mathieu is a Research Fellow at the Russia and Eurasia Programme at Chatham House, The Royal Institute of International Affairs. His research focus is on Russian foreign policy, defence and military affairs as well as on security issues in Eurasia, [post Soviet conflicts, and NATO-Russia relations.
Before joining Chatham House, Mathieu was a partner at the risk management and strategic research consultancy AESMA, where he worked as director of Eurasian affairs for various business interests and government institutions.
Having trained as a policy and security analyst in the field of post-Soviet affairs, Mathieu regularly publishes articles and papers on Eurasian security and foreign policy questions. He is also a frequent invited speaker at conferences and events around the world as well as a commentator in international media on Former Soviet Union issues.
He graduated from Sciences Po Toulouse in France and King’s College London (M.A. International Conflict Studies).
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO US BY MR. JAMES NIXEY (HEAD OF THE RUSSIA & EURASIA PROGRAMME AT CHATHAM HOUSE) AS “AN EMBARRASSMENT OF RICHES!”
