'Russia and the United States after 9/11'

We begin by briefly surveying and discussing approaches to the study of Russian foreign policy after the Cold War. These largely descriptive approaches fail to provide much purchase on the new circumstances obtaining after 9/11. Instead we consider the 'war on terror' from a broadly constructivist perspective as a new international paradigm. We describe its main features, and then consider its implications for Russian-American relations in three policy areas: Chechnya, neighbouring states, and internal security. We find in these areas both opportunities and dilemmas for Russian foreign policy.
