RSC STAFF ANALYSIS: “RUSSIAN HARD POWER IN THE SOUTH CAUCASUS”

In the latest in our series of RSC Staff Papers, entitled, “Russian Hard Power in the South Caucasus,” RSC Resident Fellow Kathleen C. Weinberger offers an innovative analysis of the main drivers and determinants of Russian strategy for securing its power and influence throughout the “near abroad.”

Weinberger, serving as a Resident Fellow at RSC, is a graduate of University of Oxford’s St Antony’s College, where she earned her Master’s (MSc) degree in Russian and Eastern European Studies, as well as the University of St. Andrews, Scotland and the London School of Economics and Political Science.  During her stay in Armenia, she also worked in the Communications Department of UNICEF Armenia. 

Her earlier work for RSC includes an assessment entitled, “Armenia’s Constitutional Reforms: Forward Movement or Momentous Fallacy?” and that examines the issue of Armenian constitutional reform in the broader international context with an added comparative analysis. 

As an independent think tank, the Regional Studies Center (RSC) is actively engaged in the public policy process in Armenia and regularly assesses critical issues facing Armenia and the wider region.
