The 13th Annual Aleksanteri Conference


The 13th Annual Aleksanteri Conference
October 23 – 25, 2013, University of Helsinki, Finland

The conference will address several themes related to Russia’s foreign and security policy as well as the nexus between domestic and international factors. Can we talk about modernization of Russian foreign policy? How has Russian foreign policy changed? How is Russia developing its relations to major international power centres? How is it dealing with its neighbours? How does it address new global issues? Is Russia’s global role on the rise or in decline? Is it possible to develop a reliable theory of Russia’s foreign policy?

We are inviting submissions for papers and panels on diverse dimensions of Russian foreign and security policy across different disciplines.

** Deadline for the proposals is May 15, 2013 **
