About us

Intersection: Russia/Europe/World is an online journal designed to provide in-depth analysis of political, economic, legal and social developments in Russia, and their regional, European and global ramifications. Intersection brings together an international team of regular and ad-hoc contributors, both established experts and those at the early stages of their careers, to create a network-based community dedicated to an open and honest dialogue about contemporary Russia. 

Intersection is a journal providing analysis consistent with facts and reality. It is an open platform, giving voice to all experts and researchers who propose exclusive and original analysis. It is a discussion platform, fostering transparent debate and promoting wide public engagement. It is also our aim to seek and promote the next generation of Russia's foreign and domestic experts.

With a goal of bridging the gap between Russia and the Western world, Intersection publishes all material in both English and Russian. Materials are available free of subscription.
