The Baltic Worlds Round Table 2011 is organized by the Centre for Baltic and East European Studies at Södertörn University, and Baltic Worlds.

This year’s Roundtable illuminates the tremendous changes that Russian social and economic life has undergone due to the introduction of market economy after the fall of state socialism. The period from 1991 to 2011 has been full of social hardships and at the same time new economic possibilities.

What were the consequences of mass privatizations for the economy in the short and long term? How did market reforms affect Russian everyday life on aspects such as housing, gender equality, health and social well-being? These and related questions will be at the centre for the discussions at the round table, where well-renowned scholars share their knowledge.

To this event we invite the scientific community as well as a broader audience interested in this topic.

When? October 6, 2011, at 9.00-18.00

Where? Södertörn University/Karolinska Institutet Campus, Hörsal/Auditorium H3, Alfred Nobels Allé 23, Flemingsberg
