Beyond the Inauguration: Where Will Russia Go Now?
Following the protests after the parliamentary elections in December 2011, much attention was focused on the cracks in Putin’s system and the political opposition. While the situation has quieted down, the underlying problems remain. After his inauguration on 7 May, Putin will appoint a new government. The government is likely to face a number of key challenges in the short- to medium-term, and its approach to them will have repercussions for Russia’s relations with other countries. This event will look at the main issues on Russia’s domestic, economy and foreign policy agenda.
Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
