Colin Woodard, state and national affairs writer, Laura Henry, professor of Government at Bowdoin College, and James Richter, professor of Politics at Bates College discuss the event that’s shaken the post-Cold War order. Colin previously covered Russia and Eastern Europe in the 1990s as a foreign correspondent for The Christian Science Monitor and The San Francisco Chronicle.

On the panel:

Laura Henry is a Professor of Government at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, where she teaches courses on contemporary Russian politics, Eastern Europe, and East European civil society. She is an expert on state-society relations in Vladimir Putin’s Russia, the subject of several of her books.



James Richter is a Professor of Politics at Bates College in Lewiston.  His early research focused on the domestic politics of Soviet and Russian foreign policy and he teaches courses in international politics and great power politics.  His current research focuses on how East European elites use history – invented or otherwise – to frame and to justify contemporary political agendas, and how this affects relations within and beyond the region.
