She’ll also elaborate on Vladimir Putin’s authoritarian vision for Russia, the subject of her new co-authored article in the centennial issue of Foreign Affairs.

Dr. Hill’s wide-ranging conversation is the inaugural event in a new REEES-Ridgway Center annual series featuring high profile scholar-practitioners who have had an important impact on recent world events.
