Guest lecture: William E. Pomeranz: Law and the Russian State (in New Perspectives on Russia and Eurasia)

Welcome to a guest lecture by Dr. William E. Pomeranz, Deputy Director of the Kennan Institute at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars (Washington DC):
Vladimir Putin and the Establishment of 21st Century Russian Legality
 
Date: Wed 20 March 2019 at 14.00-16.00
Venue: Aleksanteri Institute, 2nd floor meeting room, Unioninkatu 33, Helsinki
 
Twenty years ago, on the eve of Vladimir Putin’s assumption to the presidency, he issued his millennium message where he outlined his vision of Russia’s future.   While Putin emphasized the need for a more centralized state, he also expressed satisfaction with the 1993 constitution and its newly-established economic and civil liberties.  Two decades later, Putin has put his own stamp on the constitution, Russia’s legal institutions, and Russian law that, while addressing modern problems, also reflects the country’s deeper legal tradition.  This talk will discuss Putin’s legal policies over the past two decades, looking both at the judicial system and the broader law-creating process to access Putin’s impact on contemporary Russian law.
 
Dr. Pomeranz's lecture is based on his recent book Law and the Russian State. Russia’s Legal Evolution from Peter the Great to Vladimir Putin, published in the Bloomsbury History of Modern Russia Series in December 2018.
