  • On February 27, 2007 at the Department for International Economic and Political Studies IE RAS the session of the Academic Board "International Economic and Political Studies" has been held. Dr. (Econ.), prof. Leonid Borisovich Vardomsky, head of the Centre for Comparative Studies of Transformation Processes, made a report on the subject "The Russian Border Region Under Globalization Conditions".

The report is dedicated to analysis of structural changes in industry and in general economy of Russia’s border regions. Among the factors, defining structural modernization, the greater role belongs to foreign economic factors. The assessment of their influence in different segments of Russian border region is in the centre of attention of the given report.

The study analyzes those subjects of the Russian Federation, administrative border of which coincides with state ground border and lies along the rivers and internal basins. Out of overall length of Russian state border – 60.4 thous. km 36% falls on them. There are 37 such regions, 6 of them immediately bordering on EU, 26 with the CIS countries and 8 with China and Mongolia. Some have double neighbourhood, but are attributed to the neighbor having the vastest border. Due to well-known reasons Chechen republic is not considered in the report.

The influence of this or that neighbourhood on the Russian borderland area differs significantly, reflecting economic potential of neighbors and the volumes of trade and economic cooperation with them. Development level and geoeconomic situation of the RF subjects, considered in the study has a great influence on such a situation.
