Research: My research focuses on the dynamic interrelation between national identity and foreign policy in Russia after the Cold War. In particular, how foreign policy crises have been used by Russian elites to fundamentally reconstruct national identity and subsequently revise foreign policy. With regard to my analysis of subsequent revisions of Russian foreign policy, I focus on how Russian foreign political decision-makers’ understandings of ‘modern warfare’ and ‘disinformation’ have changed after, respectively, the Kosovo and Ukraine crisis.
