Russia In Transition

Preserving oral histories and documents for the years surrounding the post-Soviet transition

About the Program

Documenting a pivotal moment in world history

The transition of the Soviet Union into an array of successor states was a pivotal moment in world history.  Some aspects of that story are well known, while others are less familiar.  The latter is particularly true, unfortunately, with respect to the complicated commercial, energy, and financial agreements and transactions that unfolded at that time.  In an effort to improve understanding of these matters, and to create new opportunities for scholars of that era, the Strauss Center is undertaking an oral history and document collection project intended to memorialize and make accessible key insights and primary materials. The Russia in Transition project is led by the Strauss Center’s Rebecca Johnson [link to her page].
