Book

Russia, the EU and the US as a security triangle. Action, Interactions and Challenges Ahead

Athens: Eurasia Publications, 2011.
Editor-in-chief: G. Voskopoulos, I. Kouskouvelis.

The collective volume examines the relation between Russia, the United States and the European Union and its importance for understanding the current political situations in a global scale. Academics and scholars from the United Kingdom, the United States, Spain, Russia and Greece have contributed with their essays in this book. The book provides a deep and multidimensional perspective in the current relations between the three forces. Editors of this volume are Prof. George Voskopoulos (Assist. Professor, University of Macedonia) and Prof. Ilias Koskouvelis (Professor, University of Macedonia). The current edition highlights the critical point in the relations between Russia, US and the EU and emphasises the need to shape a common geopolitical vision that would enable a strategic co-operation through specific actions in the face of global threats. Instead what we are currently seeing is a growing drift – with the EU increasingly introspect, the US shifting focus to the Pacific Rim and Asia and Russia looking to Central Eurasia and the Far East. The essays in this volume argue for the need of a joint aspiration for effective strategies of engagement and cooperation through a Eurasian-Atlantic framework. This framework can also cement the « reset » in US-Russian relations and give the wider Europe a more global geopolitical clout.
