Governance in Russian Regions - a policy comparison (Palgrave, 2018)

As we launch the anthology " Governance in Russian Regions: A Policy Comparison" (Palgrave, 2018), this seminar will focus on state and civil society relations in contemporary Russia.

We'll show how loyal civil society organizations cooperate with the government in forming policy in various fields.

The book's authors will present their contributions, and we'll have time for questions and comments from the audience.

The seminar is free and open for all.
