Misremembrance of Things Past: Cooperation between Russia and the US Despite Conflicting Narratives
341 Eggers Hall
Conflict between states or actors belonging to different identity groups is often accompanied by sharply divergent historical narratives about responsibility for past wrongs. In this paper, we present a model for how cooperation can occur, even when states disagree about the past. We consider this model of cooperation with a case study of the current context of U.S.-Russian relations since the Crimea crisis.
