The Summit between Presidents Biden and Putin on 16 June in Geneva was aimed at bringing more stability and predictability to relations.  With US-Russia relations at their lowest point since the Cold War period, the bar was set very low. Nevertheless, some baby steps were taken, including an agreement to launch a substantive dialogue on strategic stability, as well as the return of their ambassadors to their respective duties and workplaces. However, the proof of the pudding is in the eating and it remains to be seen whether President Putin, who thrives on unpredictability, will genuinely engage in the process.

This on-line Policy Dialogue will bring American, European, and Russian perspectives on the summit outcomes and what’s next for US-Russia cooperation. It will also look at the impact on the EU and the potential implications for the European security situation and transatlantic trust.
