Course content

The programme is open to applications pursuing a broad range of social science research questions focusing on contemporary and recent historical developments in Russia and Eurasia. Russia and Eurasia present a range of compelling empirical and theoretical puzzles, emerging from the dislocations of economic, social and political transition, the history of policy responses thereto, and the challenges of integration and re-integration into a shifting global landscape. These puzzles demand both a thorough knowledge of the countries in question and sensitivity to methods that cut across geographic, cultural and disciplinary boundaries. The programme thus welcomes students who challenge received empirical, theoretical and methodological wisdom.

Russia Institute staff members and affiliated scholars approach the field from the disciplines of political science, political economy, sociology, political sociology and international relations, in addition to law and history.
