Russia as a Network State
Vadim Kononenko, Finnish Institute of International Affairs
This roundtable discussion will look at the role of elite networks in Russian politics, an area of increasing interest to academics and politicians alike given the country's approaching presidential election. Vadim Kononenko will discuss the dualism of state institutions and networks of power in Russia and how this affects the implementation of government decisions. He will speak for approximately twenty-five minutes, followed by an hour of questions and discussion.
