A Year of War: How Resilient is the Putin Regime?

Comparative Politics Seminar
Event Format
In person
Belfer Case Study Room (S020), CGIS South Building, 1730 Cambridge Street, Cambridge, MA

It has been one year since the beginning of Russian aggression in Ukraine. Despite the war and unprecedented sanctions Russia has demonstrated a (relatively) high level of authoritarian resilience. What are the sources of such resilience, and how sustainable are current trends? Are the effects of sanctions cumulative?  What have we learned about the Russian system? In this panel discussion, we will address questions regarding the dynamics of elite politics, center-regional relations, Russian business, and public attitudes in Russia.
