The diversification of natural gas supplies and its implications on the future of European renewables:

The essay examines the impact of diversification of gas supplies on the attainability of the EU targets for renewable energy. It is argued that the aspirations to diversify along with general dynamics in European energy production can have a detrimental effect on the future of renewables. The transition to renewable energy is hindered by the systemic fallacies of fossil capitalism, while the diversification can only be a catalyst to continuing capital accumulation. Full Text (PDF)

MA Thesis: “Post-Keynesian macroeconomic policy regime formation: What lessons can be learnt by the Eurasian Economic Union from the EU experience?”:

The Great Recession has exposed the shortcomings of European Union institutional deficiency and confined variety of anti-crisis measures. Together with irresolute policies to avert stagnation, it has led to the biggest crisis of European integration so far. At the same time, the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) tries to develop its own regional integration learning from the example of the EU. This paper studies what macroeconomic policy arrangements with regard to Post-Keynesianism for a future EAEU should be made to ensure the problems of the EU are not replicated. Moreover, the EAEU countries have had varying problems with unemployment, income inequality and after-crisis growth which could be either exacerbated or cured by further economic transformation to a complete economic union.

Online survey platform Ditto:

Ditto is an online platform that connects voters and their parties. Now, citizens can not only participate in the deliberation on a burning issue, but also directly inform their party on what they think. By asking questions, the parties consult with their electorate on the issues requiring discussion. Ditto is a communication tool that boosts democracy and party legitimacy. Citizens take part by answering and deliberating political questions. The questions are proposed either by the platform editors (for all participants) or a party (for its supporters). By comparing the results of the cross-party questionnaires, it provides a clear outlook on the level of support for or against policy/issue allowing for broad argumentative dialogue. Full Text (PDF)

Transnational project “Europe.Think.Again”: Proposal on how to improve EU cooperation and its perception:

With their economic concerns left unheard, the weaker are turning away from established political elites to extreme parties that articulate fears and shift whole political discourse into a nationalist muddling. Full Text

Working paper “Migrants against immigration: why Russian-speaking Berliners support Alternative für Deutschland”:

The capital of Germany is one of the country's most multicultural cities where every fourth person has a migration background. Yet, based on the anti-immigration agenda, the far right party "Alternative für Deutschland" has stormed into the city councils after the recent elections in September 2016. The AfD has particularly enjoyed the support of East Berlin's Russian speakers that had moved to Germany following the Reunification and Soviet Union collapse as (Spät-) Aussiedler or economic migrants. The research seeks to answer the question why Russian-speaking community voting was especially sensitive to the immigration hysteria fueled by the AfD. On the background of qualitative research interviews of AfD voters in East Berlin, the assessment of the three demand-side theses (relative deprivation, ethnic competition, reverse post-materialism) and the concept of protest voting would be shortly presented and compared with the AfD programme and flyers distributed among Russian speakers. (forthcoming)

NATO-Russia: on the way of strategic partnership:

The essay gives a constructivist account of the underlying problems in three main domains of NATO-Russia political interaction before the Crimean crisis: Afghanistan, fight against terrorism and piracy as well as ballistic missile defence and arms control. It is argued that to prevent entering into the uncertain period of confrontation and legitimizing the militarization of each other the counterparts should start with the de-freezing of military cooperation, complete concretization of the third actor or object which serves for elucidation of interests and mutual understanding of the fact that arms race never leads to perceived security.
