It is with pleasure that we announce the online publication of two new volumes in the PONARS Eurasia Policy Perspectives series:
Dividing Lines in Russian Politics and Foreign Policy Examines the relationship between domestic and foreign policy in Russia and the possibilities for change in the country’s current political-economic structure. Contributions by Serghei Golunov, Viatcheslav Morozov, Samuel Greene, Gulnaz Sharafutdinova, Robert Orttung and Irina Olimpieva, Juliet Johnson, Ekaterina Stepanova, and Dmitry Gorenburg.
Bridging Divides in Eastern Europe Assesses political and foreign policy developments in the Baltic states and Ukraine and identifies potential trajectories for cooperation across various Eastern European divides. Contributions by Mark Kramer, Kornely Kakachia, Yulia Nikitina, Ivan Kurilla, Olexiy Haran, Serhiy Kudelia, Andrey Makarychev, Ayşe Zarakol, and Harris Mylonas.
This collection of policy memos is based on the proceedings of a May 2012 workshop, “Continuity and Change: Examining Regime Trajectories and Security in East Europe and Eurasia,” held in collaboration with the Centre for EU-Russia Studies at the University of Tartu in Estonia. We hope you find these policy perspectives informative and thought-provoking.
