DR. SAMUEL CHARAP
Senior Fellow for Russia and Eurasia
International Institute for Strategic Studies, Washington DC

The Ukraine crisis is the most severe threat to European security since the Cold War, yet international diplomatic efforts have been episodic and largely unsuccessful. Why is there such a mismatch between the severity of this crisis and level of international—and especially US—engagement? Where do we go from here?

Prior to joining IISS-US, Samuel was a Council on Foreign Relations International Affairs Fellow at the US Department of State, serving as Senior Advisor to the Acting Undersecretary for Arms Control and International Security and on the Secretary’s Policy Planning Staff. From 2009–2011, Sam was Director for Russia and Eurasia at the Center for American Progress (CAP), a Washington DC-based think tank. Before joining CAP, he was a visiting fellow in the Russia and Eurasia Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and also consulted on political risks in Russia and Eurasia for Medley Global Advisors, the Eurasia Group, and Oxford Analytica, and served in the NATO Liaison Office in Kiev, Ukraine.

Sam’s work has been published in the numerous influential journals and newspapers. He holds a doctorate in politics and a masters in Russian and East European studies from the University of Oxford, where he was a Marshall Scholar. He received his BA from Amherst College. He was a visiting scholar at the Carnegie Moscow Center and the International Center for Policy Studies (Kiev), and a Fulbright Scholar at the Moscow State Institute of International Relations. Samuel is fluent in Russian and proficient in Ukrainian.
