A Russian Perspective on Global Governance

Elena Belokurova

This chapter examines how dominant political and academic discourses in Russia consider global governance, the respective roles played in this picture by policies of hard and soft power, and the role played by the values, culture, and internal policies of the current Russian regime. The case of Russia is interesting in comparison with other regions and large countries given its intermediate position between Europe and Asia, and its status as both post-Soviet country and emerging power. Moreover, in recent years, Russian claims for a more influential role in international affairs have been accompanied with a search for a traditional Russian culture and values, distinguishable from an increasingly pervasive Western culture and value system. This chapter will analyse Russian foreign policy of the last twenty years, with special emphasis on Russia-EU relations, Russia's efforts toward Eurasian regional integration, and other efforts in recent years to occupy a more influential place in the world. Although many of these development trends were already present before, they came to the fore during and after the crisis in Ukraine since 2014; therefore, special attention will be paid to the changes of these recent years.
