About

As the Soviet Union crumbled, it left behind ethnically, linguistically, and culturally diverse successor states. As these states tried to form domestic policies and governing institutions, the interests of their various populations were (and still are) often in conflict. Civil war erupted in Tajikistan and Georgia. Riots swept Kyrgyzstan. Armed conflicts broke out in Moldova and Russia. But others, such as Ukraine, have shown that multiculturalism needn't always result in widespread, violent conflict.

Policy and Conflict in the Post-Soviet Space seeks to critically analyze the post-Soviet era. Students will visit Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, and Russia to discuss the conflicts in these states, both past and present, with local students, teachers, and experts. The history and interests of the various parties to the conflicts - including any foreign interests - will be discussed. In this way, students will critically consider the modern problems of governance that face multiethnic states. Students will search for pragmatic solutions using the experience they gain on the ground. In addition, students will intensively study Russian, an important language of diplomacy across the post-Soviet space
