Why is there a conflict between Russia and the West? What is the roots of the conflict? And more importantly – how can the conflict be solved? This book attempts to provide answers to these questions, and is in particular interested in exploring the role that the processes of “othering” plays both as a causal and a maintaining factor of the conflict. Through the application of social constructivism as a methodology, the findings suggests that othering indeed do play an important role. As a potential remedy for improving the relations between the two, the book calls for a deconstruction of the detrimental discourses and image-formations of each other, emphasizing both on a destabilization of the habitus, as well as an intellectuals’ mission of “enlightenment”.
