Russia and Eurasia

Research on the former Soviet region explores geopolitics of various states, the domestic, foreign and security policy of Russia, and the conflict in Ukraine.

Key projects currently include responding to developments in Russia’s war on Ukraine, understanding Russia’s future, investigating sources of Ukraine’s resilience and monitoring ongoing reconstruction, and analysing the geopolitics of Russia and the Black Sea region.

The Russia and Eurasia Programme at Chatham House is a globally recognised focal point for analysis on how developments in this region impact on other states and institutions.
