Conference: Russia as a Power in the 21st Century
Welcome on the website of the conference on Russia as a Power in the 21st Century! The conference is organised by a collaboration between SIB-Groningen and NGIZ-Noord.
Since the beginning of the 21st century, Russia has been growing in power and importance. With its immense size, its strong gas industry and a good position on the diplomatic stage, Russia is not without reason one of the BRIC countries that could shape the future distribution of power.
This conference will look at Russian power in the 21st century and thereby focus on Russian relations with its region. In two plenary lectures, the internal and external struggles and chances of the colossal Russian Federation will be looked upon. Afterwards two rounds of master classes will give more insight on Russian diplomacy in relation to its region and its position in the gas market.
Date: 21st of May 2013
Location: Het Heerenhuis, Spilsluizen 9, Groningen
Registration is open! Be sure to register in time because there is a maximum of participants for each master class and first come, first serve!
