The Institute for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies presents:
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. 

The Russia Program is responding to the challenges of studying Russia after February 24, 2022 with the creation of a novel research ecosystem that renews our methodological toolkit, creates new knowledge commons, and focuses on key research questions—all on a platform designed to spread knowledge to a broader audience.
The Russia Program at GW condemns Russia's invasion of Ukraine and calls for the restoration of Ukraine's sovereignty.
The Russia Program's Research Ecosystem
The Russia Program operates through four key elements:
New Methods and Knowledge Commons
The Russia Program renews research methods, data collection, approaches to fieldwork, and information accessibility.
The Russia Program focuses on key research topics such as Russia's political culture, Russian society and the war, de-centering Russia by promoting regional studies, and Russia's Arctic future.
Through contemporary journalism, social research, and analysis, the Russia Program rethinks the way we talk about Russia to a broader audience.
Through the Global Academy and CISRus, The Russia Program supports research conducted by Russian scholars in exile and Russian diaspora communities.
