The Russia and Eurasia Studies at Riga Stradins University will study Russia’s increasing isolation and other dynamics that are impacting other regions and global processes.


About Russia and Eurasia Studies at Riga Stradins University

Russia's war against Ukraine has fundamentally impacted European security and will continue to cast a shadow over it in the foreseeable future as well. Other regional developments analysed in the study programme will continue to remain relevant in both the regional and global context. Those include:

  • the so-called "frozen conflicts" in Moldova, Georgia, as well as the partially active conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia;
  • undemocratic governance and related potential political and economic transformation processes in a number of countries of Eastern Europe, Southern Caucasus and Central Asia;
  • the influence of Taliban-ruled Afghanistan on Central Asian countries, in particular Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan;
  • the increasing economic and political clout of the People's Republic of China in Central Asia and other regions via Belt and Road Initiative and its projects.


The Russia and Eurasia Studies programme will help graduates develop a career in the national diplomatic corps, at international organisations, commercial companies, universities and think-tanks with a focus on Russia and/or different Eurasian issues. The programme also prepares students for further PhD studies.
