DESCRIPTION

This volume addresses actors - the casual agents of change in the former Soviet Union, and specifically Russia. The studies presented are part of the research project "Transformation and Globalization", implemented 1998-2000. The aim of the undertaking was to address the ongoing transformations in the post-Soviet spaces (predominantly in Russia) as processes shaped primarily by two groups of factors - institutions and structures from Soviet times, and the impacts related to globalization. These two sources have a decisive impact on actors and institutions in the post-Soviet world. They both offer incentives and constraints, opportunities and risks. Actors - individuals and groups - respond differently to the legacies of the past and the stimuli of the present in local and global contexts.
