Ideas for Russia is a research initiative co-founded by the Boris Nemtsov Foundation for Freedom in partnership with the Faculty of Social Sciences (Charles University) and Prague-based Institute for International Relations.
It generates comprehensive research on contemporary Russian society, as well as produces an in-depth analysis of current and future trends in the Russian economy and politics. Our focus is on scholarly and empirical research that produces relevant policy proposals for decision-makers and establishes an academic network to disseminate them to public audiences around the world. The Initiative currently implements two pilot research projects, Russia: Known Unknowns and Entrepreneurship Attitudes of New Russian Diasporas.
