Moulioukova, Dina (2011) Dialectic Relation between Foreign Policy and Russian National Identity. Jean Monnet/Robert Schuman Paper Series Vol. 11, No. 9, June 2011. [Policy Paper]
The goal of this paper is to prove empirically that international relations and national identity are two interconnected and interdependent phenomena. The argument presented here is twofold. In the first part of the argument this paper will demonstrate how external factors such as relations with foreign states can influence shifts in the sense of national identity of a state. In the second part it would argue that national identity shaped by the international relations system subsequently affects the international system itself through a state’s behavior. This analysis will be exhibited empirically on the example of Russia through presentation of various transformations that Russia’s national identity underwent after the end of Cold War due to external factors.
