Russia 2020:

Latest political developments in Russia and scenarios for the future

In 2010 Maria LIPMAN and Nikolay PETROV from Carnegie Moscow Center assembled a remarkable group of experts on Russian politics, economics, and security and tasked them with analyzing what Russia will look like in the year 2020. They urged them to explore the forces for change and the imperatives of continuity, the potentials and the pitfalls, not for the goal of predicting but instead for understanding the range of possibilities and the most likely determinants of the country’s path. The result is a kaleidoscopic study not just of Russia’s future but also its present situation. True to its subject, it is a sprawling, multilayered account, steeped in the complexities that make the study of contemporary Russia such a compelling and also challenging task. The results of this project are now published as a book and will be presented by three of the authors and commented by Michael PULCH (European External Action Service) in Berlin.
