Lecture & Discussion

Union South | Varsity Hall
Cost: Free
Join us to hear UW-Madison professors discuss the Russian involvement and motivations in the 2016 US Elections.

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? The Center for Russia, East Europe, and Central Asia (CREECA) and the Wisconsin Union Directorate's Society & Politics Committee invite you to hear a panel of UW experts discuss these and related issues.

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
 
Moderator:  Ted Gerber, CREECA Director and Professor of Sociology
