Meeting Russia 2020
Meeting Russia is one of a kind public diplomacy program for aspiring leaders. It brings together bright individuals of diverse backgrounds: some are coming from academia, analytical centers, media and private sector, whereas others represent governmental institutions of their respective countries.

The three-day program held in Moscow focuses on Russia’s relations with the United States and the European Union as well as more generally addresses Russian foreign policy issues. Participants are given a unique opportunity to get a grasp on Russia’s internal dynamics and approaches to positioning itself internationally through meetings with senior officials, top experts and by exchanging views with their peers.
