December 2016 marked the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Soviet Union. 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of Soviet Russia. Both dates give reason to reexamine the history of Eurasia, a vast region with many ethnic groups and multiple religions, at times united under authoritarian governments, at other times divided between dozens of countries.
To what extent is Eurasia a coherent region? What forces have driven its development over time. What led to the Soviet collapse? How did the post-Soviet conflicts unfold? How did Putin’s leadership shape today’s Russia? And finally, what will US relations with Eurasia look like in the coming years? These are the questions that FPRI’s Eurasia History Institute for Teachers will address in October 2017.
