Russia has unique mechanisms of interaction for its relations with foreign countries: bilateral dialogues with Germany, France, Austria, and a number of other countries. All three dialogues bring together representatives of civil society, the academic world, and the business community. The St. Petersburg Dialogue demonstrated its enduring nature and stability during some of the most stressful periods, the Trianon Dialogue emerged when tensions between Russia and the West reached their climax, and the Sochi Dialogue built on the experience of both difficult and fruitful contacts in various matters. What experience and opportunities do the Russian-German, Russian-French, and Russian-Austrian dialogues offer according to their co-chairs?
