Russia and the United States have many areas of conflict and some possible areas of mutual interest. Arms control, Russian interference in U.S. elections and support of cyberattacks, the status of Ukraine, the fate of opposition politicians in Russia, all continue to be concerning. Norma Noonan will investigate how the new administration in Washington is approaching these issues.
Norma Noonan, Ph.D. is Professor Emerita of Political Science and Leadership Studies at Augsburg College. She is an expert in comparative and international politics and leadership studies, with special interest in Russia among other topics.
