Introduction Most people know about, but few are willing to condemn, the strict taboo in the media, of criticizing Jews as a group, using that term. One cannot even criticize a small subsection of Jews, a miniscule percentage of the Jewish population, even when they richly deserve it. Obviously, this is a ridiculous way to run a publication whose object is to get to the truth, so I am writing this to explain why, from now on, the pages of Russia Insider will be open to articles which fairly and honestly address the influence of Jewish elites, including pointing out when it is malevolent, which it often is, and try to understand it and explain it, with malice towards none.
What is Russia up to?
This meeting provides a forum where business leaders and policymakers can discuss how energy technologies, geopolitics, and regulation will affect business and society in the medium term. The objective is to offer different short courses on significant topics, taught by scholars and experts of international prestige.
The School will enable participants to broadly discuss - in and out the classroom - current developments in world politics in the light of core social-science and IR theories and perspectives.
A social program for networking will be also available to participants. Optionally, students may ask for an assessment in order to be able to obtain ECTS credits, provided they are recognized by their university.
In Europe and Spain there are currently important political initiatives underway, which aim to regulate the evolution towards a new, more sustainable model.

Members of the research team will present their ideas and initial findings to Javier Solana, the former foreign policy chief of the European Union. On March 18th, Vladimir Putin will renew his term as president of Russia until The elections, beyond feeling the pulse of popular support for the Russian leader, will be a mere formality.
However, there are serious uncertainties about the changes that the Kremlin can introduce in domestic politics and in the Russian foreign agenda and, with them, its impact on NATO, the EU and the disputed Eastern and Southern Neighbourhoods.
This will require immense efforts, and will have huge effects on emerging countries lacking technology and many exporters of energy resources. This talk will explore possible macro effects of this transition across the globe. The speakers will analyse the state of democracy in Europe and its future, as well as the latest events that have taken place in the continent and have tested, not only the values of the EU, but also its very existence.
Today, the EU is looking for a new narrative that provides legitimacy and strength and, as Innerarity highlights, stays away from populist simplifications or technocratic justifications. Few would disagree with this statement, but what does it mean exactly? What kind of Russia is back?
What does it imply for the European security architecture and the global order? In MarchRussia will hold new presidential elections and it is likely that Vladimir Putin will renovate his mandate for 6 more years until However, noticeable signals of mounting problems, growing social discontent, uncertain economic prospects, military interventions abroad and tensions with some neighbors and the West, trigger important questions on whether and how the Kremlin will be able to face these challenges and what international implications will it entail.
However, we still know little about which actors enjoy what kind of access, and with what consequences.
On the flipside, we know little about who is excluded, formally and informally, and the problems this creates.The case against thought leaders, The Ideas Industry shows, is damning.

Russia Insider published a long profile of him and his work in Much of his work, both paintings and books, dealt extensively with the Jewish role in Russian history. Since the implosion of the Soviet Union in the early s there has been little public interest or discussion regarding Russian military intentions or capabilities.
Scholarship, by its very nature, is an iterative process, with ideas and insights building one upon the other. Collaborative scholarship requires the study of other scholars’ work, the free discussion .
