Wednesday, June 13, 2018 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM
France constitutes one of the most prominent examples of Russia's soft power in Western Europe, due not only to the long-lasting, positive bilateral relations and cooperation in strategic sectors, but also to the presence of an important Russian émigré community that can act as a transmitter of influence.
Carnegie Council senior fellow Marlene Laruelle, accompanied by Jean-Yves Camus and Nicolas Lebourg, will discuss the role of the Russian emigration and Russian cultural institutions in France, the contacts existing between Russia and French far right, and the support Russia may receive from some more mainstream political movements and business actors.
This event is part of the Russian Soft Power in France project, led by Marlene Laruelle.
