Yesterday, Carol Saivetz visited this year's EPIIC class to discuss energy politics in Europe.

Carol R. Saivetz is a research associate at Harvard’s Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies and a research affiliate at the Security Studies Program at MIT, where she is running a seminar series on Central Asia and Afghanistan.  From 1995-2005, she was the Executive Director of the American Association for the Advancement of Slavic Studies, the major professional organization in the field of Russian, Eurasian, and East European studies.  From 1992-2006, she was a Lecturer in Government at Harvard, where she taught courses about Russia and the Middle East.  She is currently teaching Russian foreign policy in the Political Science Department at MIT.  Professor Saivetz has consulted for the US Government on topics ranging from energy politics in the Caspian Sea region to Russian policy toward Iran.  She is the author and contributing co-editor of five books and numerous articles on Soviet and now Russian foreign policy issues, including an assessment of the “reset,” Russian policies toward the other Soviet successor states, and Russian attitudes toward the “Arab Spring.”  Her current research interest is energy competition in and around the Black Sea region.  Her most recent publications analyze the newly resurgent Russia’s foreign policies—including energy policies and reactions to EU and NATO expansion.
