Since 1996 Russian Public Policy Center Foundation (RPPC) has been publishing the quarterly journal Politeia which is one of the most prestigious Russian periodical publications in the political science sphere. In 2009 with support of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation and Znanie International Humanitarian Public Foundation (grant # 068) RPPC has launched this project – the Russian political science yearbook "Russian Polity". Its mission is to broaden interaction between the Russian political science and the global political scientists’ community which is now almost exclusively one-sided.

The first issue of the yearbook consists of the best articles published in our journal in 2007–2008 and is dedicated to Russia and its relations with the closest neighbors. Here is the full internet-version of the yearbook.
