Chaos as a Strategy: Putin’s Promethean Gamble

Grant Year: 2017


Peter Doran and Donald Jensen will examine the geopolitical strategy of Putin’s Russia in Europe. They will undertake research, carry out field work, and convene a seminar in order to test the thesis that Russia is pursuing a strategy of chaos, deliberately sowing instability on a bet that Moscow can exploit disorder more effectively than its Western rivals. The project’s findings will be presented in a monograph.
