U.S.-Russian Subnational Engagement: Connecting Markets and Communities

November 19, 2012 // 12:00pm1:00pm

As 21st century statecraft demands that nation's engage one another in all layers of economic, cultural, and political diplomacy—it is also increasingly clear that such engagement must occur not just on the national level, but just on the regional front as well. This "subnational" approach empowers nation states to create new partnerships and inroads with local leaders and institutions in advancing a litany policies, but it also empowers regional leaders to forge ahead and on key efforts and collaborate with key leaders, across nations, on a level never before seen. Such a model for engagement is being molded and shaped at the State Department as the next generation for U.S. and Russian diplomacy, and Special Representative Reta Jo Lewis will not only outline how connecting local markets and communities is a strong pathway forward for U.S.-Russian engagement, but will also draw on how such efforts between nations have played out in recent memory—connecting the dots for the next chapters of 21st century diplomacy.
