Grant Year: 2015

Janusz Bugajski and Peter Doran will examine the geopolitical competition between Russia and the West that is unfolding in the Black Sea region. They will conduct research and interviews and convene working groups in order to examine the position of the Black Sea in Russia’s wider security strategy, Moscow’s military operations and capabilities in the region, the impact of Russian actions on target states, and possible U.S. and NATO responses to Russian activities. The project’s findings will appear in a report and related papers.
