International Cooperation in the Development of Russia’s Far East and Siberia. By Jing Huang

12.10.2015
A more fundamental and far-reaching cause of Russia's withdrawal of its historic attraction to the West is the impact of the Global Financial Crisis on the United States and Europe and, as a consequence, a relative decline of the West's economic attractiveness. Given the current crisis in Ukraine, which has shed light upon the implications of a resurgent Russia and reshaped its relations with Asia Pacific, there has been growing interest amongst countries from the Asia-Pacific region in cooperating with Russia towards the development of Siberia and Russia's Far East. This timely edited collection includes chapters by internationally recognized experts from Russia, China, South Korea, Japan, Norway and Singapore. The contributors analyze political, economic, social and geostrategic roadblocks in the Russia/Asia Pacific relations, offering directions for further
development.
