HSE Russia Strategic Studies Working Group - First Research Assignment Seminar
On the 22nd of December, the Russian Strategic Studies Working Group has conducted its fourth seminar in the framework of our HSE Working Group on Russian strategic studies that will support student-led research on Russia's security strategy in the twenty–first century. This seminar provided a technical consultation to students working on the first stage research project that examines the role of the symbol “stability” in Russia’s National Security Strategies from 2009, 2015, and 2021. Ph.D. candidates Artem Maltsev and Pavel Devyatkin led discussion of the project methodology, research design, and upcoming work for the period of December 2022 to Summer 2023.
This Working Group on Russian strategic studies aims to facilitate seminar discussions with leading Russian and international practitioners and academics on the bases of cooperation and the challenges of competition for the governing of interconnected 'regions' in today’s global governance system.
Our practical and theoretical focus is on the institutional organisation and strained relationships between Russia and other powers in global governance, especially in regional arrangements for governing the Arctic and for securing the Euro–Atlantic and Eurasian space.
