This roundtable discussion will deal with the question of whether viable alternatives to two crucial events in Russian history were ever present: first, the Russian October Revolution in 1917, which led to the establishment of the communist regime. And second, the rollback in 1929 of the New Economic Policy introduced by Lenin in 1921, which created a mixed market economy of small peasant farms in the agricultural sector, whereas the industrial sector was comprised of large state enterprises with the addition of small cooperatives and private firms. The speakers at this round-table will tackle the question of what possible alternatives to these important events could have looked like in practice, what lessons can be drawn from history, and how they might be incorporated into future policy decisions.

The event will take place in Moscow State Lomonosov University, the Shuvalov Building of MSU, 5th floor, room#518.
