What Kind of a Europe for What Kind of Russia

What Kind of a Europe for What Kind of Russia

(p.301) Chapter Eleven What Kind of a Europe for What Kind of Russia

Alexander Rahr

NYU Press

This chapter argues that Russia can and should fit into a wider Europe, and that this will be good for both the Russians themselves and for other Europeans. In doing so the chapter examines what went wrong in the relations between Russia and the West over the first two decades after the end of the Cold War and how the idea of an alliance can be repaired in the coming decades. Progress, however, will be difficult: the West favors relations with Russia based on a community of liberal values; Russia, instead, wants a partnership with the West based on purely pragmatic interests. The chapter thus concludes with a set of practical recommendations for Russian and European leaders aimed at creating an integral relationship between Russia and the West.
