Russia and Eurasia: towards a new Intermarium

Russia and Eurasia: towards a new Intermarium

After the end of the Cold War, the ‘lands between’ joined NATO and the EU. History appeared to have ended.

Over the past few years, however, the invasion of Georgia, the annexation of the Crimea and many other Russian provocations have brought a revival of the Russian territorial and ideological challenge. The United Nations, the EU and even NATO have struggled to contain this threat.

Against this background, our project will examine why Germany and the Mediterranean powers have been so slow to react to the resurgence of Russia. It will also investigate the energy and military vulnerabilities of the ‘lands between’ today.

Above all, the project will explore the chances for a ‘New Intermarium’ rallying Poland, the Baltic and the Black Seas states against Russia, and the extent to which such an enterprise would be inimical or conducive to the wider project of Eurozone political integration.
