Responding to the Russia Challenge: Defense and Security Priorities for the United States

Grant Year: 2016

Kathleen Hicks and Lisa Samp will develop a blueprint for a more robust U.S. strategy to counter Russia’s use of hybrid warfare to project its power in Europe. They will examine the genesis of Russia’s aggressive conduct, explore lessons from past U.S. approaches to managing Russia’s behavior, and offer recommendations for adjustments in U.S. and NATO strategies and capabilities to manage the challenge posed by Russia. The project’s findings will appear in a report.
