It has never been more important to take a closer look at Russia. Thirty years after the fall of the Soviet Union and 100 years since the Bolshevik revolution, Russia and the post-Soviet region are again at the heart of the political, economic and cultural conversations and conflicts that are reshaping the world. So, too, do global developments continue to reshape the region, which is still in the midst of one of the most profound transformations in modern human history.
The mission of King’s Russia Institute is to support interdisciplinary, balanced and cutting-edge research on how societies, politics and economies function throughout the region, and on the region’s place and impact in global affairs. The King's Russia Institute provides a focal point for Russia-related activities across a range of academic disciplines.
Situated in the heart of London, the King’s Russia Institute is a hub for discussion and debate, linking UK, regional and global audiences in education, the cultural and creative sectors, business and government.
The Russia Institute is part of the School of Politics & Economics in the Faculty of Social Science and Public Policy.
