About the Borderlands Project

Jack Snyder, Robert and Renée Belfer Professor of International Relations in the Department of Political Science and Institute of War and Peace Studies at Columbia University, and Alexander Cooley, Claire Tow Professor of Political Science at Barnard College and Director of Columbia University's Harriman Institute, discuss the aims and successes of the Borderlands conference held in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan in June 2016. The conference, co-hosted by the Harriman Institute and OSCE Academy, was part of an initiative funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York to examine the geopolitics of the Eurasian borderlands.
