Russian New Generation Warfare and the Political-Military Transition in Europe and the Middle East

Grant Year: 2017


Nikolai Sokov and Dmitry Adamsky will examine how Russia might use its military and non-military instruments of power to shape events in Europe and around the world. They will assess the nature of Russia’s “new generation warfare,” particularly its orchestration of military and non-military instruments and its nuclear and non-nuclear strategies. They will also examine Russian military writings and undertake case studies of Russian policies and actions vis-à-vis NATO, Ukraine, and Syria, testing the theory of new generation warfare against Russian practice. The project’s findings will appear in a co-authored monograph.
