Moynihan European Research Centers Presents: Mr.Putin: Operative in the Kremlin by Fiona Hill

Co-sponsored by the International Relations Program and the Political Sciences Department

Fiona Hill
Director of the Center on the United States and Europe and senior fellow in the Foreign Policy Studies Program at The Brookings Institution

Who is Vladimir Putin? Observers have described him as a "man from nowhere"—someone without a face, substance, or soul. Leading Russia expert Fiona Hill argues that Putin is in fact a man of many and complex identities, and explains how understanding Putin’s multiple dimensions is crucial for policymakers trying to decide how best to deal with Russia.

Fiona Hill is director of the Center on the United States and Europe, and senior fellow in the Foreign Policy Studies Program at The Brookings Institution. Previously Hill was the National Intelligence Officer for Russia and Eurasia at The National Intelligence Council. She is the co-author of Mr. Putin: Operative in the Kremlin (Brookings Press, 2013) and The Siberian Curse: How Communist Planners Left Russia Out in the Cold (Brookings Press, 2003).

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
