Frontlines is an editorial partnership between oDR and CEELBAS, a consortium of UK universities offering cutting-edge research and training on Russia, Central and Eastern Europe. The articles in this series, produced by early career academics, present new research from some of the most under-reported corners of the former Soviet Union.
In 2015, we turn to 'Religion, Ethnicity and Culture' as our guiding theme on the premise that the tensions between Russia’s many religions are driving social and demographic change all across Russia, the CIS and Baltic States. Indeed, these tensions have come to play a role in political strategy, which is manipulating ethnic divisions. As our authors suggest, is it possible to reconcile these religious and ethnic differences?
