Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has put an end to the conventional ways of studying and understanding Russia. The war has destroyed horizontal connections, dismantled research cooperation, made fieldwork almost impossible, and called into question previously-acceptable methods and sources of information.
Hosted at GW's Institute for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies (IERES), The Russia Program is responding to the challenges of studying Russia after February 24 with the creation of a novel research ecosystem that renews our methodological toolkit, creates new knowledge commons, focuses on key research questions, and reengages with Russians—all on a platform designed to spread knowledge to a broader audience.
