Talk explores 'Putin's Russia,' April 24--CANCELED
Posted April 19, 2007; 04:42 p.m.
This lecture has been canceled because Andrei Illarionov will be in Russia to attend Boris Yeltsin's funeral.
"Putin's Russia and Beyond: What Is the Model?" is the title of a lecture by Andrei Illarionov, a former chief economic adviser to Russian President Vladimir Putin, set for 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 24, in 219 Burr Hall.
Illarionov, one of Russia's strongest advocates of an open society and democratic capitalism, also served as Putin's personal representative to the Group of Eight industrial nations. He currently is senior fellow at the Cato Institute's Center for Global Liberty and Prosperity.
The talk, designated as the Cyril Black Memorial Lecture, is sponsored by the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies.
