Gain an appreciation for contemporary research in the humanities. In this lectures, Matt Romaniello discusses modern Russia. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Russian Federation had to navigate its relationships not only with the former Soviet states but also a number of semi-autonomous regions inside Russia. In 2001, a new law eradicated any local or ethnic political parties that did not have representation at the national level in an attempt to curtail the independence of these regions. This talk will focus on the relationship between three key Muslim regions inside Russia (Chechnya, Tatarstan, and Chuvashia) to understand Russia's struggles with multi-pluralism.
