The Russian Military: Today and Tomorrow
A conference in honor of Mary C. FitzGerald
Monday, August 24
The reassertion of Russian power, especially military power, in recent years requires a more sophisticated understanding of the Russian military and its possible future development. The necessity for such study has become even more important with the Obama administration actively seeking a new foreign policy toward Russia. This understanding must include the current defense reform efforts, Russian perceptions of security trends in Europe and Asia, new Russian concepts of national security, and Russian views regarding future war, information warfare, the role of nuclear weapons, and Russia's efforts to develop forces for power projection beyond Russia's borders.
Hudson Institute convened a conference in honor of the memory of our late colleague Mary C. FitzGerald, who passed away on April 5, and brought together distinguished defense analysts who worked with her.
