Global Studies in Russia

The school will focus on Russia’s global role. After all, Russia is constantly in the news – but do we know much about its actual inner workings and outer ambitions? Is it still ‘a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma’, as Churchill famously said, or perhaps ‘a normal country’, as some suggested after the fall of Communism? We will discuss Russian politics, the historical forces shaping it as well as current trends. We will explore Russia’s role in the post-Soviet region and in the world, interrogating its great power ambitions and tough political manoeuvering as well as its role in the international institutions. We will talk about big business in Russia and the ways it is integrated into the global economy. Delving deeper still, we will look into the attitudes and values of the Russian population, comparing it regionally and internationally. You will learn about Russia – but you will also deepen your knowledge of key political, economic and sociological concepts through the discussions of the Russian case.

Summer school is organized in cooperation with partner universities.
