 Projecting Sovereignty in Post‐Soviet Russia: Tatarstan in the International Arena

Show Summary Details

Preview

Uses Tatarstan's relations with Russia as a case study of the new opportunities for the nationalist exercise of state sovereignty, which the post‐Cold War international system affords to actors that are nominally sub‐state members of another state. Explores how Tatarstan has attempted to construct a sovereign presence in the international arena in the post‐Soviet period: first, by establishing bilateral relations with other states, and by increased participation in international politico‐economic organizations and networks; second, by pursuing a type of ‘anticipatory adaptation’, wherein Tatarstani elites have attempted to raise the country's profile in the international community.
