Faculty & Fellows Colloquium
Over the last decade and a half, Russian firms shifted from illegal to legal strategies of property rights protection. This presentation will explore the nature of this shift, key factors behind the transformation, and implications for state building in Russia.
Jordan Gans-Morse (PhD, University of California-Berkeley, 2011) is an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science. His research examines the political foundations of property rights in post-communist countries, with an emphasis on Russia. He has published articles on the interaction between economic reforms and democracy, the history of neoliberal economic reforms, and theories of political transitions. He has been a Junior Fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington, D.C. and a two-time US State Department fellow in Moscow.
