Russia's Encounter with Globalization: Actors, Processes and Critical Moments


The chapters of this book analyse an increasingly important dimension of Russian politics, namely responses to globalization. How do Russia’s policy actors understand and seek to meet the political challenges of the 21st century? Emphasis is placed on understanding how Russian domestic politics shape this international engagement. Thematically, the focus is on Russia’s external engagement with areas of policy relating broadly to globalization, namely energy, climate, health, direct foreign investment, finance, and international terrorism.
