In May 2011, IMEMO held a theoretical discussion on the challenges and risks to the stability of Russia. The theses for contemplation were presented by E. Gontmakher, Doctor of Economics and Deputy Director of IMEMO, and N. Zagladin, Doctor of History and Head IMEMO Center for comparative economic and social studies (CESPI). During the discussion of the actual problems of modern Russia the participants proposed a number of extremely important considerations: 1) in the socio-political terms, Russia is among the unfavorable countries of the world, the main indicators of this situation are presented; 2) the ideological-political terms are also bleak: the Russian society is riven by ethno-national, religious, clan and other lines of demarcation which create strong risk of confrontations between different groups of the population; 3) as for the factors of globalization, Russia is not best fit into the globalized world economy.
