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 mostly focuses on the post-Soviet space, especially the Russian Federation and the countries in Central Asia.

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 Eurasian context.  We examine globalized societal transformation  and the development of human security through migration, official and unofficial governance, transnationalism and religion.
