Commissioned research

In today’s shifting geopolitical landscape there is a need for deeper understanding of the Russian Federation and of regional developments in Eastern Europe as a whole. The tense relations between Russia and the West have a major impact on Europe’s security and economy and affect a wide range of issues, from the Arctic to the Middle East and from arms control to energy relations. In addition challenges in Eastern Europe such as domestic reform and protracted conflicts directly affect the stability of Europe’s neighbourhood.

The Clingendael Russia & Eastern Europe Centre aims to increase knowledge of this vast and complex region through analysis, strategic policy advice and events, in close co-operation with Dutch universities and knowledge platform Raam op Rusland.

On this page you find our experts, latest research, events, trainings and media content on Russia & Eastern Europe. Stay tuned for our next webinars.
