Our Moscow office’s activities aim to strengthen democratic political culture in Russia. For this purpose, we primarily try to empower women and to promote the idea of gender democracy. Additional topics are ecological modernization of the economy, responsible climate policies, and debates examining Russia’s nuclear energy.
The office works closely with Russian NGOs, including Memorial, Ecodefense, St. Petersburg Centre for Independent Social Research, etc. In joint efforts with its project partners, it stands for participation of relevant civil society actors in international dialogue and promotes peaceful resolution of international conflicts and crises. Another particular focus of its work is on the relations between Russia, its immediate neighbours, and the EU.
