We are pleased to invite you to a joint Research Seminar of the Centre for Comparative Governance Studies and Department of Political Science and International Relations, which will be held on Friday, April 29, 2022 at 6.00 pm (MSK).
Speaker: Irina Busygina (Professor, HSE University, St. Petersburg, Russia).
Title: Tested by sanctions: center-regional relations in Russia in 2022 and onward
Given Russian territorial size and diversity, it can be argued that any serious reform and any shock – external or internal - will have a territorial dimension and will influence the current model of relations between Moscow and the regions. For example, this happened after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and was called in the literature administrative or blame-shifting decentralization. What will be the implications of unprecedented sanctions that the West is imposing against Russia for the center-regional relations? Will we observe the continuation of administrative decentralization, and what will be the regional governors’ strategies of political survival? Will the governors seek to strengthen horizontal interregional cooperation, or each of them will try to survive alone?
Working language: English Seminar will be online via Zoom.
