Global

Reconstitution

The ongoing war in Ukraine is a symptom of a large-scale political crisis that has both regional and global dimensions. The prevailing expertise and scholarship on Russia largely failed to see the exact scale of the crisis coming, let alone to avert it. It failed to realize, most importantly, how the dangerous tendencies within Russia are interrelated with major global challenges. The Institute for Global Reconstitution (IGRec) is a research initiative that pursues a theory-minded, historical, and imaginative scholarship aimed to fully understand the reasons of the crisis and to reconstitute: imagine a new political architectonic that would allow to overcome it.
