On Friday last John O’Loughlin and I talked to a full seminar room at George Washington on our research findings in three of the Eurasian ‘De Facto States’ (the emergent consensual term among academics though this is at variance with more geopoliticizing understandings). We presented 10 slides and disaggregated the results on ‘Soviet Union’s collapse as a wrong move’ and ‘best political system’ by age and socio-economic status). We are currently preparing our first publication comparing these regions as well as a paper that deals specifically with South Ossetia.
