This seminar will build on a historical perspective on the problems facing countries with a post-Communist legacy and will turn to the contemporary internal and external challenges of political control, economic development, and societal management. Putin’s leadership, ethnic frictions, energy dependencies, regional sensitivities, the platform of international treaties and laws among other topics will be discussed. The seminar will propose to range comprehensively to whatever issues and subjects are critical in the international environment at the time of the session.
