Master's Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: Russia, grade: 1,7, University of Kent (Brussels School of International Studies), language: English, abstract: The Ukraine crisis reached its peak point with the Russian annexation of the Crimea peninsula at the beginning of 2014. The annexation has since marked a turning point in the Russian-Western relations. Russia has disrespected international laws and norms, and thereby questioned the European order. The crisis reflects a significant shift in European geopolitics. It is a symptom amongst others of the long-term development in the Russian-Western relations. The crisis has exposed how vulnerable the post-Cold War European order is. The crisis management of the Weimar Triangle and Visegrad Group has not been fruitful. Indeed, the only forum which has succeeded in keeping the Russian-Western dialogue alive has been the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). It is the largest regional security organization in the world comprising fifty-seven member states from Europe, Northern America, and Asia. The organization bases its work on the shared values of its member states and aims to promote peace, security, and democracy. Since the organization is so central to the conflict, the research question aims to explain Russia’s attitude towards the OSCE during the Ukraine crisis by asking: What was the Russian attitude towards the OSCE during the Ukraine crisis from 2013-2016? In support of the research question the paper will refer to Russia’s behavior towards other states on the former Soviet territory in order to draw parallels to the approach towards Ukraine before 2013 to establish an understanding of Russia’s general stances on the intergovernmental organization and the development of the relations.

In this volume, some of the world’s leading scholars involved in researching the fields of ethnopolitics, nationalism and ideas of nation and state, have come together to produce a work that is both original and accessible. The volume explores the rich, but sadly neglected tradition of thought on non-territorial cultural autonomy as exemplified by the work of Karl Renner and Otto Bauer and the European Nationalities Congress of the 1920s. Through a combination of theoretical analysis and case study approaches, the authors challenge conventional thinking on how best to reconcile competing claims over territory and cultural expression. Drawing upon a range of examples from countries such as Russia, Romania and Hungary, and by comparing the situation of territorially-based ethnic minorities with those - principally the Roma - who lack identification with a given state or states, the authors of this volume seek to supply answers and question received truths.

Cultural and Linguistic Minorities in the Russian Federation and the European Union

This is the first comprehensive volume to compare the sociolinguistic situations of minorities in Russia and in Western Europe. As such, it provides insight into language policies, the ethnolinguistic vitality and the struggle for reversal of language shift, language revitalization and empowerment of minorities in Russia and the European Union. The volume shows that, even though largely unknown to a broader English-reading audience, the linguistic composition of Russia is by no means less diverse than multilingualism in the EU. It is therefore a valuable introduction into the historical backgrounds and current linguistic, social and legal affairs with regard to Russia’s manifold ethnic and linguistic minorities, mirrored on the discussion of recent issues in a number of well-known Western European minority situations.

The Second Advocate, a work of fiction relates the story of a world engulfed in anarchy and hatred in the year 2041. The story begins in 1995 with the death of Paul Davies, a United States Marine General killed in Bosina. Paul has been chosen by the Creator to become the Second Advocate sent to Earth, to determine whether humanity is capable of joining the nations of the universe or should be destroyed to protect the common good. Forty-six years pass as Paul is prepared for his return by the greatest collection of minds in history to become an omniscient force to alter the path mankind has chosen that will lead to its destruction. His spirit is united with the body of Prince Abdual Aziz who was conceived at the moment of Pauls death in preparation for his return. The world is a different place in the year 2041. The United States has separated into three provinces, racially divided but still united under a central administration for the common good. Because of previous nuclear conflicts, the world is now divided into three political and military alliances. Islamic nations have joined into an alliance to eliminate all who do not believe as they do and are at war with nations comprising a European alliance. As Prince Aziz, Paul exerts his vast knowledge to gain the confidence of the Arab world, with the exception of Iran, Iraq, and Libya. He successfully confronts the American President and negotiates the removal of the American Fleet from the Mediterranean Sea by promising among other things to staunch the ongoing terrorist activities upon American interests. Detractors and would-be assassins of Prince Aziz find themselves eradicated either by military force or divine intervention. The Prince gradually reveals his identity as the Messenger of God, the Chosen One. While Islamic Countries readily accept his identity, other cultures require proof positive that he has divine guidance. A meteor shower over major cities at the Princes command reinforces his claim. When the nation of India will not agree to Nuclear disarmament and join the other major alliances, their military bases are destroyed by earthquakes and buried deep in desert sands. Prince Aziz is ultimately successful at uniting the world and communicating the message that aggression and hate do not fit into the greater plan of the universe. A world Congress of Nations is formed to eradicate famine and guarantee the peaceful coexistence of nations. The writing combines elements of fantasy, religion, world culture, and politics and may be interpreted as a work of entertainment or creative social commentary. It may be of interest to a reader who appreciates fiction that embraces the supernatural. It is a timely work given the current state of world affairs and the threat of terrorism originating from the Middle East. This is a work of fiction. Names, characters, places and incidents are either the product of the Authors imagination or are used fictitiously. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, events, or locales is entirely coincidental.

Eurasian Disunion: Russia’s Vulnerable Flanks examines the impact of Moscow’s neo-imperial project on the security of several regions bordering the Russian Federation, analyses the geopolitical aspects of Kremlin ambitions, and makes recommendations for the future role of NATO, the EU, and the United States in the Wider Europe. Russia’s attack on Ukraine and the dismemberment of its territory is not an isolated operation. It constitutes one component of a broader strategic agenda to rebuild a Moscow-centered bloc designed to compete with the West. The acceleration of President Vladimir Putin’s neo-imperial project has challenged the security of several regions that border the Russian Federation and focused attention on the geopolitical aspects of Kremlin ambitions. This book is intended to generate a more informed policy debate on the dangers stemming from the restoration of a Russian-centered "pole of power” or "sphere of influence” in Eurasia. It focuses on five vulnerable flanks bordering the Russian Federation--the Baltic and Nordic zones, East Central Europe, Southeast Europe, South Caucasus, and Central Asia. It examines several pivotal questions, including the strategic objectives of Moscow's expansionist ambitions; Kremlin tactics and capabilities; the impact of Russia’s assertiveness on the national security of neighbors; the responses of vulnerable states to Russia's geopolitical ambitions; the impact of prolonged regional turmoil on the stability of the Russian Federation and the survival of the Putinist regime; and the repercussions of heightened regional tensions for U.S., NATO, and EU policy toward Russia and toward unstable regions bordering the Russian Federation.
