Is Russia part of the European security community? What is its relationship to the structures of European security governance? It was previously suggested that Russia occupies an ambiguous position—related to but not fully part of this community or its system of governance. This chapter elaborates this theme in greater detail, first by setting out in broad terms the nature of Russia's exclusion and then by analysing its relationship with Europe in terms of a search on both sides for a more inclusive relationship. It explores the possibilities and parameters of this relationship, focusing on the long-term prospects of Russian integration into the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and, more schematically, its standing in relation to the core features of security governance. The chapter also discusses Russia's search for inclusion in Europe and characterises security governance by looking at region, institutionalisation and compliance.
