Politics and Society in Russia and Eurasia


Course description

In this course you will learn about recent changes in Russian politics and society. We will focus on the relationship between the state, business and the people, and on Russia’s relations with other post-Soviet states. The focus of analysis will be explicitly comparative. We will compare developments in post-communist Russia to the neighboring countries in Eastern Europe (Belarus, Ukraine) and Central Asia. We will discuss politics and economics across the range of the post-Soviet states trying to understand why their trajectories diverged. The course will go beyond the country-by-country comparisons to look at regional institutions and the post-Soviet states’ relations with the world. We will also examine a crucial nexus between domestic and international politics, as provided by international political economy, power politics, nationalism and ethnicity.
