[Vortrag Regensburg] Andrey Makarychev: Russia's (Non-)Policy of Neighborhood: Competing Approaches

02.06.2015 (18:00 - 20:00)

Im Rahmen der "Regensburger Vorträge" referiert am 2. Juni Andrey Makarychev (University of Tartu) zum Thema "Russia's (Non-)Policy of Neighbourhood: Competing Approaches". Die Veranstaltung findet im Wissenschaftszentrum Ost- und Südosteuropa, Landshuter Str. 4, Raum 017 statt.

Inhalt des Vortrags

The lecture discusses the discrepancy between the concepts of a 'Russian world' and Eurasianism. They constitute a major controversy embedded in Russian integrationist policy towards its 'near abroad'. The distinction between the two concepts is substantial: the 'Russian world' is a biopolitical doctrine premised on protecting an imagined trans-territorial community of Russian speakers allegedly sharing a common macroidentity, while Eurasianism is a set of geopolitical ideas focused on governing territories rather than articulating identity discourses.
