(1) Roots of Russian Western Policy; (2) The future of “Responsibility to Protect (R2P)” post-Libya. We have two excellent speakers to deal with the current and future role of NATO, with regard to Russia’s relations with the West, and how NATO should deal with the concept of R2P. These issues are not mutually exclusive. Russia is trying very hard to play a more active role in the Middle East and North Africa, and NATO’s role has expanded well beyond the security of Western Eu...rope and the Atlantic area.
