Thursday Webinar

The Russian, Eurasian and East European Studies programme now hosts a ‘Thursday Webinar’ often in collaboration with our partner organisations. The inaugural version of this, in Trinity Term (May/June) 2021, focused on social and economic development in Azerbaijan with what proved a popular and thought provoking series – ‘Beyond the Boom’. The second edition, in Michaelmas Term (October-December) 2021 focused on Georgia and Belarus.
