Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs presents a special panel on Russian soft power in France, with guest speakers from France. Simultaneous translation will be provided.
France constitutes one of the most prominent examples of Russia's soft power in Western Europe, due not only to the long-lasting, positive bilateral relations and cooperation in strategic sectors, but also to the presence of an important Russian émigré community that can act as a transmitter of influence.
Carnegie Council Senior Fellow Marlene Laruelle, accompanied by Jean-Yves Camus and Nicolas Lebourg, will discuss the role of the Russian émigré community and Russian cultural institutions in France, the contacts existing between Russia and the French far right, and the support Russia may receive from some more mainstream political movements and business actors.
