The Lands in Between: Russia vs. the West and the New Politics of Hybrid War
480 South Broad Street, Philadelphia
Get a glimpse into the innovative and impactful research taking place at Penn Arts & Sciences at the Penn Science and Lightbulb Cafes. The lecture series is free and open to the public and takes place in Center City at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre.
Russian interference, from the Ukraine to the U.S., has forced citizens in the West to face the problems of election hacking, state-sponsored disinformation campaigns, influence operations by foreign security services, and frozen conflicts. Citizens of the frontline states between Russia and the European Union have long been familiar with this type of hybrid war. In his talk, Mitchell Orenstein contends that these "lands in between" hold powerful lessons for Western countries. Increasingly, the political pathologies of these small states in Europe are Western problems, too.
