We've all had deep discussions with our friends while we're out at night. Why not add a couple of experts to the mix and really take it up a notch? That's the idea behind Think & Drink, a happy-hour series that sparks provocative conversations about big ideas.

​There is no consensus among Americans as to whether Russia is a friend or foe.  During the Cold War, most Americans believed that the Soviet Union was a foe and our foreign policy and military strategy reflected this.  However, today there is a growing divide in America mostly along partisan lines on whether Russia shares our interests or not.  This is due, in part, to our own questioning of America's role in the world. Could Russia be both America's friend and foe? If so, what does American foreign policy look like?  Gaining consensus on where we stand in relation to today's Russia is critical to our nation's future.   

Discussion led by Dr. Stacy Closson
