Quiz: what kind of Kremlinologist are you?

They come in all shapes and sizes.

Editors of OpenDemocracy Russia
5 September 2017

Do you want to get paid for pontificating on Putin? Kremlinology might be for you! While it is usually described as the study of Russian politics and policy, Kremlinology has most recently made a comeback as a means of commenting on the Russian president, not to mention the conspiracies he may or may not be involved in.

Sounds exciting, doesn't it? But before you jump into the fray, it's important to develop your own, distinct Kremlinologist style. If you're wondering how to do that, it's your lucky day! For we at openDemocracy Russia have come up with a quiz, a kind of special Kremlinology sorting hat, to help you determine which way to go:
(function(d, s, id){ var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0], r = Math.floor(new Date().getTime() / 1000000); if (d.getElementById(id)) {return;} js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.async=1; js.src = "https://www.opinionstage.com/assets/loader.js?" + r; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, 'script', 'os-widget-jssdk'));

 

US election: what's at stake for the rest of us?

Our editor-in-chief, Mary Fitzgerald, is on the ground in key battleground states ahead of the US election.

There's never been more at stake. But the pandemic has kept many foreign journalists away. Hundreds of international observers who normally oversee US elections aren't there.

Hear Mary describe what she's seeing and hearing across the country, from regular citizens to social justice activists to right-wing militias arming themselves for election day.

Plus: hear from the journalists behind openDemocracy's latest big 'follow-the-money' investigation, which lifts the lid on how Trump-linked groups have exported their culture wars across the world.

Join us for a free live discussion on Thursday 29 October, 5pm UK time/1pm EDT.
