Graduate students and researchers of IMEMO RAN initiated the re-creation of the Council of Young Scientists and Specialists in 2003 in order to enhance scientific communication and creative interaction between young researchers. Efforts of young professionals are focused on the study of interdisciplinary problems of the world economy and politics.

Board Members meet regularly to discuss the burning issues of world economy and international relations, also to exchange opinions on papers and monographs by the young scientists IMEMO RAN, and for round table discussions with the participation of leading specialists IMEMO RAN.

Annual Scientific Conferences conducted with the support of the Presidium of the Academy of Sciences gained particular importance for the Council. The conferences are popular among young scientists – economists, political scientists, historians, geographers, as well as graduate students not only from IMEMO RAN, but also from other leading Moscow and regional research centers and universities. The Council established a creative interaction with young researchers from other institutions related to the Department of Global Issues and International Relations RAN, also with the Institute of Economics RAN, the Institute of World History RAN, Moscow State University, MGIMO (University), Ministry of Foreign Affairs RF, Nizhniy Novgorod University, Perm University, Yaroslavl University and other regional universities.

The follow-up to the conferences can be found in the Reports, published as part of the ongoing publication “World Development” by IMEMO RAN. Find more on our web-site in “Publications”.
