With the current conflict in Israel-Gaza and fast-changing geopolitical dynamics, the media is looking to experts for analysis.
Hanna Notte, director of the Eurasia Nonproliferation Program at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies is an expert in Russia’s arms control and nonproliferation policies and its relations with the “Global South,” particularly the Middle East.
In an opinion piece for the New York Times, “Putin Is Getting What He Wants,” Notte outlines how Russia may be peripheral to the conflict, but stands to gain from it in three key areas: Its military campaign against Ukraine, its designs on the Middle East, and its global war of narratives with Western states.
“Styling itself as David to the Western Goliath, Russia has framed its war against Ukraine as an “anticolonial” fight to end the West’s global dominance—tapping into powerful grievances held across the developing world about Western arrogance and hypocrisy,” writes Notte.
