Russian Futures 2030: The Shape of Things to Come

Cover page


This Chaillot Paper looks at Russia on the horizon of 2030. It offers analytical insights into the twists and turns that may characterize the country’s path in the upcoming decade, and explores how a number of critical uncertainties may have a significant impact on Russia’s future trajectory. These key uncertainties work as ‘catalysts’ that may speed up the pace and alter the direction of change in Russia. The insights into Russian futures contained in this volume will hopefully guide Russia watchers – and the policymakers of today and tomorrow – as they start preparing for the risks as well as the openings that lie ahead.
