Global Processes and Flows – Eurasian studies under one roof

Eurasian studies is a growing research area in the Aleksanteri Institute. In geographic terms, our research focuses on the post-socialist space, including the Russian Federation, Central Asia and Eastern Europe.

Our site brings together the diverse research projects conducted or coordinated by the Aleksanteri Institute, University of Helsinki, that  focus on the ways in which various global processes and flows emerge in the post-socialist Eurasian context.  We examine globalized societal transformation through migration, religion, governance, illiberalism, and informality.
