Kennan Institute Update
The Kennan Institute bridges the gap between the world of ideas and the world of public affairs by bringing scholars and governmental specialists together to discuss political, social, and economic issues affecting Russia and other successor states to the Soviet Union. Each year, the Institute organizes approximately 60 seminars, workshops, briefings, and conferences featuring prominent scholars and policymakers from America, Russia, and other successor states to the Soviet Union. All Kennan Institute programs are free of charge and most are open to the public. The Institute makes available the results of its activities through a variety of publications, most of which are available free of charge and are available for download on the Kennan Institute website and are distributed to individuals, organizations, and institutions throughout the world.
