The Eurasian Vector of Russia's Development

P. 25-33.

The paper touches on original propositions of ‘Eurasianism’ as a theory of certain historic modality, and argues that it has to be taken more seriously than in its merely discursive aspect if it is to be related to current political and economic developments. It particularly focuses on Russia being a historical core of Eurasian world after the Mongol invasion. The essence of Eurasia is captured through Russia’s particular societal and economic organization, as well as its relationships with other peoples of Eurasia. The paper also contains reflections about the inherently statist mode of Eurasian societies and their sociocultural foundations, which cannot be neglected in projecting any future economic policies and reform.
