Launch of Post-Soviet Brief

3 October 2017

Post-Soviet Brief

SSEES is excited to launch a new initiative, 'The Post-Soviet Brief'  tied in with our famous Post-Soviet Press Group. 

The goal of the Post-Soviet Brief ("the Brief", for short) is to provide short, engaging analyses from SSEES academics and students on interesting developments across the region. This analysis is aimed at a range of audiences, including policymakers, journalists, and academics. Topics will range from informal politics and corrupt practices to Crimea, from elections in Central Asia to law and courts in Russia.

New content will be posted on a rolling basis, but notices of new stories will be included in the weekly email from the Post-Soviet Press Group. The Group meets weekly every Wednesday at 1pm during term time in Room 431 of SSEES and all are welcome to attend. 

The first posts are now available on the Brief's webpage. 
Any questions can be sent to Dr Ben Noble. To stay up to date with developments, register for the mailing list.
