1. Coleman, Heather. "The Modern Martyrs of Russia: International Interest in Evangelical Christians and Religious Freedom in Late Imperial Russia" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASEEES Convention, Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, <Not Available>. 2019-11-12 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1019595_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: This paper explores the outpouring of interest in the fate of Russian religious dissidents in the West in the late 19th and early 20th century. The stundists (Ukrainian evangelicals) served as martyrs for both a revived Christianity in an era when faith had become too comfortable and for the liberal values that seemed destined to spread across the world. The international campaign in aid of the stundists highlights the role of evangelical religion in the elaboration and international transmission of liberal ideas about the individual conscience, the individual’s relationship to the state, and the state’s relationship to religion.

Abstract: We begin with a brief history of social security policy in Russia both before and after the collapse of the Soviet Union. We describe the current pension scheme. We then explore the reasons why Russia is in the process of implementing a social security scheme based largely on a model proposed by the World Bank, concluding that the decision reflects the effects of both internal and external economic pressures as well as cultural diffusion via the network of neo-liberal economists and pension experts associated with international financial institutions, most notably the World Bank. We conclude with a discussion of how we would restructure the Russian scheme making greater use of the notional defined contribution (NDC) model.

Abstract: Russia's invasion and subsequent victory over Georgian forces in August 2008 was hailed as a sign of a strong and resurgent Russia. Russia gained a quick victory over American trained Georgian forces much to the amazement of military strategists and politicians while brushing off international criticism over her actions. It was felt and said that Russia had re-emerged as a strong world power.
I strongly believe though that we must re-evaluate the situation and in so much I cannot agree with the view that Russia was acting initially from a strong position, and ended stronger. Rather, I hold that Russian strength was and is nothing more than a veil covering inherent weakness. Though Georgian forces were routed, the war did reveal Russia’s international diplomacy weakness, deficient areas of their military, and the fragility of the Russian economy.
Russian actions have revealed a nation that is scared of outside influence near her borders. She is strained by a military that is still technologically and operationally backwards and is tied to an economy that is as fragile as crystal. Russia finds itself at odds with most of the international community. Russia may be viewed as strong for acting without the consent of the international community but that will only bring about greater resolve against her by sovereign nations. Russia is no stronger today than she was before the conflict.
The Russian bear may have awoken in 2008 but that bear has aged since 1991 and might as well have just stayed asleep.
