Abstract : Relations between Russia and NATO have deteriorated dramatically since 2008. Unfortunately, traditional explanations emphasizing historical continuities and power politics are insufficient to understand the current dynamics. A sociological approach to international relations, emphasizing intergroup interaction, offers an alternative perspective and can help us better understand recent trends of Russian behavior toward the West.
