In January, the US intelligence community concluded that Russian President Vladimir Putin had ordered a campaign to influence the 2016 US presidential election in Donald Trump's favor. What were Russia's motivations for interfering in the election? Do its actions represent a significant threat and what are the prospects for future conflict?

Panel members: Scott Gehlbach, Professor of Political Science
Yoshiko M. Herrera, Professor of Political Science
Robert Kaiser, Professor of Geography
Ron Machoian, Senior Lecturer, International Studies
