The Biden-Putin Summit: Outcomes and Implications
WATCH VIDEO OF THE EVENT BELOW
A joint panel of the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft and the American Committee for U.S.-Russia Accord (ACURA).
The summit in Europe between presidents Joseph Biden and Vladimir Putin is perhaps the most important of all President Biden’s international meetings since he took office. The United States and Russia are bitterly divided over a number of key issues, and it has even been suggested that the situation in Ukraine could lead to actual war between them. On the other hand, the United States and Russia have certain vital interests in common: averting the threat of war, limiting nuclear weapons, combating terrorism, managing the aftermath of the U.S. military withdrawal from Afghanistan, and preventing catastrophic climate change.
To review the summit, examine these issues, and make recommendations for future U.S. policy towards Russia, the Quincy Institute is delighted to host a joint panel of experts, commentators and public figures with the American Committee for U.S.-Russia Accord.
The panel will feature former California Governor Jerry Brown; Katrina vanden Heuvel, editorial director and publisher of The Nation; and Joseph Cirincione, Distinguished Non-Resident Fellow at the Quincy Institute. Anatol Lieven, QI’s senior research fellow on Russia and Europe, will moderate.
