The Post-Socialist City: Spatiality of Political Authoritarianism

Aleksanteri Institute – Finnish Centre for Russian and Eastern European Studies invites IfL researcher and visiting fellow alumnus Nadir Kinossian as a guest speaker

Aleksanteri Institute Visiting Fellows Research Seminar Series features the work of the outstanding scholars who have been invited to conduct their research within the Aleksanteri Institute Visiting Fellows Programme.

On November 7 Nadir Kinossian will give insight into his research on post-socialist cities. His paper argues current research on post-socialist city relies on the critique of the capitalist city, assuming that capitalism has asserted itself in the post-soviet world. In reality, there is a variety of outcomes. His paper suggests that research on post-socialist cities should revive the transition perspective and engage with all elements of transition (namely democratisation, marketization, and institutional development) in order to appreciate various outcomes of transition and the role of cities in it.
