Methodological and theoretical approaches to research of influence of the new US-Russia confrontation on the international ‘economic and political order

Priority areas of development: humanitarian
2015
The project has been carried out as part of the HSE Program of Fundamental Studies.

The nature of the Ukrainian crisis started in 2014is much wider than just a geopolitical clash of two great powers. US-Russia confrontation at this moment has transformed into a stable confrontational model of relations between the two counties.  Development of this model was determined by objective (misbalanced global and regional order after the end of Cold War) and subjective reasons: a number of mistakes, made by the both sides in the second part of the 90s, beginning of 2000s. Therefore, it is worth to research of the influence of the new model of US-Russia relations on the international order on different levels.

The goal is to study the nature, reasons and perspectives of the model of US-Russia relations, their influence on global and regional orders, as well as develop methodology and theoretical basis of the research of the “new Cold War”

The empirical base of research consists of “open” sources”: Russian and foreign media, public speeches of politicians, statistical data of the international institutions, national agencies and independent organizations. The academic literature and analytical reports related to the topic also were used

The methodology is passed on recognition and detailed research of mutual influence between US-Russia relations and evolution of the international economic and political order. Research is based on such theories of international relations as structural realism and neoclassical realism, what assumes focus on reaction of actors on structural challenges and influence of actors’ policies on evolution of structure of international relations

The results of the research: the research will contribute to the theory of foreign policy and bilateral relations in the sphere of interconnection between domestic and international factors determining agenda of the bilateral relations between great powers as well as influence of these relations on the development of international order.

The main methodological result of the research will be development of methodology of prediction and research of the future international economic and political order depending on relations between the key powers in the world, in particular, depending on how exactly will be overcome the new US-Russia confrontation

Level of implementation the results of the project will be implemented in the work on recommendations and analytical papers for executive bodies (Presidential Administration, Ministry of Foreign Affairs) and private companies. The outcomes of the research will be also used for educational purposes, for creation of the new educational and research programs of the faculty of world economics and international affairs
