In the light of the presidential elections in Russia on 18 March, this event will examine Russia’s prospects over the next six years. The first session will focus on what Putin’s continued presidency means for Russia’s domestic scene: the reconfiguration of influence in his inner circle, the forecast for the Russian economy, and the unspoken social contract between Putin’s government and the Russian people. In the second session, the speakers will discuss Russia’s foreign policy and the outlook for Russia’s relations with the West, former Soviet States, China, Japan and India.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
