Revisiting the Axis of Convenience

Wednesday, November 16, 2016
12:00pm
Marshall D. Shulman Seminar Room (1219 International Affairs Building)

Please join us for a talk with Bobo Lo about Sino-Russia relations.

Bobo Lo is an independent analyst. He was previously Director of the China and Russia Programmes at the Centre for European Reform; Head of the Russia and Eurasia Programme at Chatham House; and Deputy Head of Mission at the Australian Embassy in Moscow. He is an Associate Research Fellow with the Russie/NEI programme of the French Institute of International Relations (IFRI).

Dr Lo writes extensively on Russian foreign policy. His latest book, Russia and the New World Disorder (Brookings and Chatham House, 2015), was short-listed for the 2016 Pushkin House prize, and described by The Economist as ‘the best attempt yet to explain Russia’s unhappy relationship with the rest of the world.’ Previously, Foreign Affairs called Lo’s Axis of Convenience: Moscow, Beijing and the New Geopolitics ‘the best analysis yet of one of the world’s most important bilateral relationships.’

Bobo Lo has an MA from Oxford and a PhD from the University of Melbourne.

Copies of his books will be available for sale at the event.

Support for this event was provided in part by a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
