At a 3 February 2010 event cosponsored by the Kennan Institute and the Wilson Center on the Hill program, three experts discussed the legacy of Jackson- Vanik, and how the United States can contribute to improving the human rights atmosphere in Russia without reverting to the dynamics of the Cold War.
