Training a New Generation of Russian Social Scientists and Diffusing Social Science Expertise of Russian Regional Universities

This project's central aim is the training of the next generation of international social scientists. Working in conjunction with the European University of St. Petersburg, Russia, there have been three major components to the program: the placement of young scholars from the European University at Russian regional universities, various efforts to "network" between and among the regional universities, the European University, and the University of Michigan; and a University of Michigan program of training young scholars from the European University.
