This collective monograph presents an interdisciplinary analysis of modern processes in the space of the Greater Europe macroregion. The paper provides assessments and recommendations for identifying the most promising areas of cooperation for the countries of the Eurasian continent. The research focuses on the analysis of the current state of the region from the point of view of globalization trends and complex interaction of two integration associations: the EU and the EAEU. Analyzed the economic, institutional and political aspects of regional integration, as well as the development of the international security system. The scientific project was implemented on the initiative of the Councils of Young Scientists of the Institute of Economics of the Russian Academy of Sciences and IMEMO RAS.
Continuing the research of predecessors on the development and crises in Europe and the near abroad, this work is intended to present their own view of the future of the Greater Europe macro-region. The main question posed by the authors of the monograph is - in what conditions could the countries of Greater Europe develop most successfully? What areas of regional integration (or disintegration) should receive the most attention when choosing a long-term development strategy, primarily within the EU and the EAEU? In order to get closer to the answer to this difficult question, it is necessary to analyze the integration processes in the region, to identify the main challenges and points of bifurcation. The specificity of the task at hand presupposes a fundamental analysis of a significant number of phenomena of social life, which are difficult not only to generalize, but also to present in one book. The authors of the monograph focused on a number of fundamental and most pressing issues of integration, which first of all require assessment and reflection.
The monograph examines theoretical views on objectives and methods of regional economic integration, identifies main events in the history and the principles of unification of the markets for goods, services and individuals, reveals the mechanisms of non-tariff barriers control and the instruments of technical standards harmonization. The author interprets logical judgments and decisions of the Court of Justice of the EU, aimed to preserve the market integration. The author comes to the conclusion that economic arguments predominate in the logic of the Court.
The book focused on conceptual issues of markets integration with the aim of further consideration in the practice of Eurasian integration.
Это книга об эго-документах (документах личного происхождения) и книга из эго-документов. Эмпирическую ее основу составили 12 уникальных дневников военного времени, написанные представителями широкого типологического спектра участников и жертв войны — двух красноармейцев в действующей армии (особиста и штрафника), одного коллаборанта, трех военнопленных, четырех остарбайтеров и двух лиц, переживших оккупацию, в том числе одной узницы гетто. Снабженные необходимым научным аппаратом, эти же дневники являются полноценными автономными публикациями, насыщенными неизвестными или малоизвестными событиями, деталями и ракурсами. Сами по себе такие документы — необычайная редкость, и их авторы, несомненно, услышали в себе зов истории и испытали сильнейшую внутреннюю потребность в их ведении.
The offered new book tells the story of modern China. The phrase "Chinese miracle" - with an easy hand of some economists and journalists from China - on everyone's lips. In fact, China today appears to be something out of the ordinary: a record GDP growth and modernization of the market, while maintaining and even strengthening of the communist one-party state. How the Chinese managed – if at all - to merge socialism with capitalism? And for how long may this merger work - temporarily, for a long time or forever? In response to these and other questions, the author moves away from ideological clichés and "Eastern exoticism". He is interested, above all, in real functioning of the mechanism of Chinese socio-economic system in the years of market reforms, and what may be the most likely outcome of the mechanism for the foreseeable future. The book is based on a large number of Chinese sources, as well as on the results of field research conducted by the author in China over the past five years.

The paper considers the main trends in the international activity of Mexico in the first two decades of the 21st century, as well as the leading trends in the socio-political development of this largest Latin American country. The author shows that Mexico not only claims to be a regional leader, but is also increasingly involved in solving the main problems of world politics, where it pointedly takes up the independent and self-sufficient positions. Will Mexico finally manage to complete this “U-turn” from the United States to Latin America, the once lost position which it is trying to restore? The answer to this question was the main task of the author of the work. The book is addressed to a wide circle of readers interested in the politics of contemporary Mexico, and in the problems of relations between Latin American countries and the United States. Certain sections of the study can find their practical application in the postgraduate education courses and can be used to prepare special courses and education programs. © Publishing house “Nestor-Historia”, 2020 ©
This monograph deals with migration issues in Europe. The authors examine how migration affects the social and political situation in the European Union and point out difficulties in integrating immigrants in the EU Member States. They analyse the normative base of the EU immigration policy and consider new proposals in combating illegal migration as well. Challenges for the Russian immigration policy are also in the focus of authors’ attention. Experts define specific features of labour immigration to Russia and characterise different channels to attract foreign workers. The latest changes in the Russian immigration law, a case of the Southern Federal District in the context of Russian immigration policy, applicability of the EU’s experience and the EU-Russia cooperation in migration are also observed. In conclusion the authors express their concern over the fact that even with existing programmes, laws and institutions immigration policy in different parts of Europe is still lacking efficiency.
