Russia's Food Policy and Globalization, Hardback Book

Russia's Food Policy and Globalization Hardback

Part of the Rural Economies in Transition series



The post-Soviet period has witnessed Russia's increasing interdependence with other nations in its food trade, as in the economy as a whole.

President Putin has repeatedly identified international integration as an economic necessity if Russia is to share in the benefits of globalization.

In Russia's Food Policies and Globalization, author Stephen K.

Wegren analyzes the primary questions affecting Russia and globalization.

How do Russia's domestic and external food policies affect its efforts at international integration?

How prepared is Russia for global economic integration, for instance, entrance into the World Trade Organization?

What are the structural, economic, and political obstacles that exist in Russia's food policies which in turn hinder closer integration?

In short, will Russia integrate or fall behind, and what is the role of food policy in deciding this crucial issue?

Through an analysis of Russia's contemporary food policies and strategies, Wegren places Russia's economic development in a new international context.

Political scientists, economists, policymakers, and scholars of the Soviet and post-Soviet period, as well as those interested in rural studies, must read this book.
