* an examination of political institutions and processes covering the new constitutional order, the emergence of a strong executive, Russian parliamentarianism and the emerging party system
* a discussion of the relationship between federalism, nationalism, regionalism and localism
* Russian economy and society, including a discussion of economic reform, social transformation and cultural change
* an exploration of foreign policy, defence and security policy, state and nation building in the other 14 post-Soviet republics, the Commonwealth of Independent States and the problem of borders, migration and citizenship
