Beyond a New Cold War? International Security and the Need for U.S.-Russia Cooperation

There is a widespread concern in both the United States and Russia that we are on the brink—if not indeed already in—a new, and potentially more dangerous Cold War standoff. Since the onset of the crisis in Ukraine in 2014, significant bilateral cooperation created over decades has been eroded by a worsening relationship—even in such mutually essential areas as nuclear arms control, terrorism, and environmental threats.

The American Committee for East-West Accord is a nonpartisan organization of prominent U.S. citizens from business, the academy, government service, science, law, and other fields dedicated to the proposition that no real or lasting American, European, or global security is achievable without essential and stable cooperation with Russia.

Speaking to these challenges and opportunities will be the following Committee for East-West Accord founding board members:

Stephen F. Cohen, professor emeritus of Russian studies, history, and politics at New York University and Princeton University, and twice a Guggenheim Fellowship awardee for his scholarship on Russia;

Jack F. Matlock, U.S. ambassador to the Soviet Union from 1987-91, and prior to that senior director for European and Soviet affairs in President Reagan's National Security Council;

John Pepper, former chairman and chief executive officer of The Procter and Gamble Company, also formerly chairman of the Walt Disney Company and the Yale Corporation;

William vanden Heuvel,former U.S. ambassador to the European office of the United Nations and deputy ambassador to the United Nations during the Carter administration.

This event is co-sponsored by the Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia at New York University and the American Committee for East-West Accord.
