Molchanov, Mikhail A.

Molchanov, Mikhail A. Mikhail Molchanov’s research interests include regionalism and globalization, Russian foreign economic policy, and politics of energy in Eurasia. As a student of international political economy of regionalization in Eastern Europe and Eurasia, Dr. Molchanov focuses on the dynamics of domestic and external factors in foreign policy formulation and development. He has recently co-edited the Ashgate Research Companion to Political Leadership, which surveys theories of leadership and examines their implications for leadership in the global era. Dr. Molchanov's analysis of Russia’s foreign policy in the post-Putin era seeks to delineate the limits of Russia’s postimperial realignment. This research proposes that over-reliance on energy trade and officially promulgated nationalism may weaken Russia's positions in Central Asia, as well as the country's relations with the European Union, NATO, and the United States.
