Student publication: Yash Sharma on the Russian Strategy

Yash Sharma, fourth year student of the BA (Research) International Relations program, has published an article that examines a unique Russian strategy for enhancing power and influence in its neighbourhood. 

In contrast with the standard realist explanation for Russia's neighbourhood behaviour, Yash Sharma advances a constructivist-ontological security based argument. He claims that a constructivist-ontological security approach helps reveal that the Kremlin is equally, if not more, interested in its ontological security along with its physical security. The article has been published on the website of Washington D.C. based International Affairs Forum. It is available on the link below.
