Several times per year the Center for Russian Studies at RANEPA had the privilege to host distinguished scholars, authors and policymakers from Russia and abroad. The Center’s Open Lectures format allowed scholars to share their latest research, discuss publications and engage with the audience from RANEPA and other institutions, as well as to reach out to those abroad by having their lectures recorded, simultaneously translated and relayed over the Internet. Here are a few videos from the list of lectures mentioned in the PDF section.
