For all its weaknesses, Russia remains a major global force, demanding rigorous and clear-minded analysis.

Our research covers Russia’s domestic trials and tribulations, as well as its idiosyncratic foreign policy.

The Chatham House Russia and Eurasia Programme conducts research and analysis with a granularity and objectivity from which broader trends can be discerned - both in Russia’s internal governance and in its quest for greater influence on the world stage.
