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.

Decline reading group end of term report

Jun 26, 2017

In 2017 the Forum on Geopolitics convened a reading group for a series of eight discussions titled: ‘From Thucydides to Trump. Decline in History.’ The reading group investigated the causes of the decline of nations, empires and civilizations, bringing together participants from the fields of history, law, business, public policy, urban studies, physics, and ecology. The group read texts by Herodotus, Thucydides, Plato, Ibn Khaldun, Machiavelli, Rousseau, Hegel, Nietzsche, and social theorist Joseph Tainter. The texts were chosen for their theoretical power, intellectual rigour, and capacity to shed light on the state of the world in the twenty-first century. In a future effort, the Forum hopes to expand its scope of inquiry by addressing the problem of developing grand strategy in the context of decline.
