Event description

Description

Economic factors have played an important role in political developments in Russia, from the bread shortages that triggered the February Revolution of 1917 to the breakdown of the Soviet economy that boosted popular demands for democracy in the late 1980s to the economic difficulties of the 1990s that damaged the political standing of liberal reformers and paved the way for an authoritarian restoration. This seminar will consider the relationship between the economy and politics in Russia and how economic factors may impact the fortunes of Vladimir Putin’s regime.

Special Guest: Dr. Sergey Aleksashenko, former deputy minister of finance and deputy chairman of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation; nonresident senior fellow in Global Economy and Development at the Brookings Institution
