The co-mingling and conflation of political commentary with expert, foreign policy analysis is a (problematic) casualty of these cable television times. In this space we will, as the war in Ukraine continues, point to some commentary and analysis by scholars and experts on Russia, Ukraine, and foreign policy. Poor analogies and analysis by people who are anything but experts is rampant.

In our blog, we'll continue to post what we view as the best, informed scholarship and analysis.
