The Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies‘ Center for the Study of Europe hosted an online workshop titled “Russian Media Influence in the US and Europe” on May 22, 2020. 

In this workshop, Elizaveta Kuznetsova, visiting researcher at the Center for the Study of Europe, and Heidi Erbsen, research fellow at the University of Tartu in Estonia, presented insights countering the common perception that Russia operates with a Grand Strategy to undermine Western hegemony.

The mission of the Center for the Study of Europe is to promote understanding of Europe through its cultural heritage; its political, economic, and religious histories; its art, literature, music, and philosophy; as well as through its recent emergence as a new kind of international form through the European Union (EU).  Operationally, the center provides a focal point and institutional support for the study of Europe across Boston University through coordination of teaching missions, support of research, community-building among faculty and students, and outreach beyond the University.
