In the latter part of the series they will examine the aspects of Soviet modernization and its consequences until the collapse of the Soviet Union in the 1990s and the return of authoritarianism in the 21st century. The series of lectures will be jointly organized by the Eastern Europe Institute of the Freie Universität Berlin (OEI) and the Center for Eastern European and International Studies (ZOIS).
