The new book “Russia and the Future of Europe,” edited by Webster Vienna Rector Professor Johannes Pollak and others, including Professor Michael Kaeding and Paul Schmidt, provides an overview of recommendations on how policymakers approach Russia in the future. It also includes insights from over 40 countries in the European Union and the surrounding area.
This book sheds light on how member states of the EU and neighboring countries relate to Russia. It includes the countries' historical, financial and political ties, as well as the public perception of the national population vis-à-vis Russia. Each chapter builds on these factors to elucidate each country’s position toward Russia and provides a prediction on the future of these relations.
This volume shows the diverse relations that the EU member states and neighboring countries have with Russia, ranging from tense and confrontational to more eased and friendly, highlighting the contrasts between each EU member state and the EU as a whole. The book also presents the reader with concrete aspects in different policy areas, via recommendations on how single countries and the EU should deal with Russia.
