Are U.S. sanctions on Russia working? Does Russia use its energy resources as a tool to coerce European countries? Will Russia’s economic stagnation affect the country’s presidential election scheduled for March 2018?

Any assessment of Russian foreign policy and the Kremlin’s relations with the United States depends on a clear-eyed understanding of Russian political economy. FPRI’s Eurasia Program is launching a program featuring credible, expert analysis on key themes in Russian political economy.

The Russian Political Economy Project will publish papers and host events in Washington, New York, and Philadelphia on the subject. The Project also includes the FPRI Bear Market Brief, which provides a daily round-up of the major news items related to Russian politics and economics.

For more information, please follow us on Twitter @BearMarketBrief and subscribe to the Bear Market Brief.

In 2017, the Russia Political Economy Project will publish papers on the following topics:

 

  1. Russia’s Debate about How to Spark Economic Growth: Kudrin vs Titov
  2. State Owned Companies: Their Politics and Economics
  3. The Political Economy of Corruption in Russia
  4. Social Spending and Living Standards
  5. The Future of Russia’s Gas Industry
