    Russian Analytical Digest (RAD)
    This edition assesses contemporary federal relations in Russia. Firstly, Carolina De Stefano considers Kremlin-governor relations, noting that the center’s latest response to its dilemma about how to exert control over the regions without undermining their stability is a combination of technocratic management and a stronger official anti-elite and anti-corruption line.
