CERBA-RACS Seminar: «Canada-Russia Dialogue since 2014: Views of the Russian Experts»

Dear CERBA Members and Friends,

We are happy to invite you to the seminar, organized jointly by CERBA and the Russian Association for Canadian Studies (RACS) with the support from the Institute of US and Canada RAS (ISKRAN).

The seminar will be devoted to the political, cultural, social and economic aspects of the Canada-Russia relations. Russian academic experts will share their views on the history and evolution of the Canada-Russia dialogue, its current state and perspectives for further development.

In our view, this seminar will constitute a great addition to the RCBC Symposium on Canada-Russia on Commercial Relations held on December 6, 2017, by providing the coverage of those aspects of Canada-Russia bilateral relations not covered during the Symposium, and thus assisting participants in forming broader and more accurate picture of the bilateral relations between Russia and Canada.

CERBA would like to express its gratitude to the catering sponsor - Lindfors.
