Event Description

France constitutes one of the most prominent examples of Russia's soft power in Western Europe, due not only to the long-lasting, positive bilateral relations and cooperation in strategic sectors, but also to the presence of an important Russian émigré community that can act as a transmitter of influence.

Carnegie Council senior fellow Marlene Laruelle, accompanied by Jean-Yves Camus and Nicolas Lebourg, will discuss the role of the Russian emigration and Russian cultural institutions in France, the contacts existing between Russia and French far right, and the support Russia may receive from some more mainstream political movements and business actors.

This event is part of the Russian Soft Power in France project, led by Marlene Laruelle.

Marlene Laruelle is senior fellow at Carnegie Council and research professor and associate director at the Institute for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies (IERES) at The Elliott School of International Affairs, The George Washington University. Read her project paper here.

Jean-Yves Camus is a political analyst and an associate research fellow at the French Institute for International and Strategic Affairs.

Nicolas Lebourg is a researcher at the University of Montpellier and member of the Observatory of Political Radicals (ORAP) of the Jean Jaurès Foundation.

This project is supported in part by a grant from the Foundation Open Society Institute in cooperation with the OSIFE of the Open Society Foundations.

Global Ethics Weekly: Migration in the Age of "Zero Tolerance"

Today's discussions about immigrants and refugees are focused on the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy on the U.S.-Mexico border and the "migration crisis" in the Mediterranean. Carnegie Council Senior Fellow Kavitha Rajagopalan explores the history of these debates, what it means to be undocumented in Europe versus the United States, and why many still view immigration through the prisms of terrorism and crime.

China's "Opinion Deterrence" with Isaac Stone Fish

"I think it's important to contrast what China is doing with what Russia is doing," says Asia Society's Isaac Stone Fish. "Russia influence operations and Russia influence is much more about sowing chaos, it's about destabilization, it's about making America weaker. China is much more about making China stronger. The United States is a vector and a way for China to become stronger." Elon Musk, Alibaba, and China's internal power structures are also discussed in this wide-ranging talk.

American vs. Chinese Propaganda, with Robert Daly

As China's middle class grows, Hollywood is making films with this audience in mind, says the Wilson Center's Robert Daly, previously a producer for the Chinese version of "Sesame Street." How is this different from filmmaking in the World War II and Cold War eras? And why did the Chinese government have a problem with Cookie Monster and Grover?
