The fourth presidential term of Vladimir Putin ends in 2024. According to the Russian constitution, he cannot take part in an election again, unless he changes the form of government. Every power, however, has its limit. Putin’s reign will end, too. What’s next? What will Russia after Putin be like?
What will the power change model look like? Does Russia have to remain authoritarian? What role will Moscow play in the world? These are questions that academics will put during the Nationwide Science Conference: ’Russia after Putin’, organizedby Vistula University. The Institute of Central Europe in Lublin is a patron of the event.
