In: Contemporary Russian Conservatism
Free access


The idea for this volume came from the international conference “Conservatism in the Post-Soviet Context: Ideology, Worldview, or Moral Choice?,” which took place on 8–9 May 2017 at the Uppsala Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies. The editors want to acknowledge the support of this center (especially, Professor Elena Namli), as well as the Uppsala Forum on Democracy, Peace, and Justice. They would also like to recognize Marlyn Miller for her work on the language and the style. This book was made possible thanks to the project “Postsecular Conflicts,” financed by the Austrian Science Fund FWF START GRANT 2015 Y919 G22 and by the European Research Council, project POSEC, ERC STG 2015 676804 (principal investigator Kristina Stoeckl).
