A lecture by TONY WOOD, Deputy Editor, New Left Review, Author of Chechnya: The Case for Independence (Verso 2007). The lecture is part of the Annual Colloquium Series of the Center for Social Theory and Comparative History.
As Vladimir Putin leaves the Kremlin, what has been the balance-sheet of his policy in the North Caucasus? Tony Wood will assess the outcomes of the 'anti-terrorist operation' launched in Chechnya in 1999, and ask whether the current process of 'stabilization' is likely to provide stability for the region in the long term.
