About Us

The Institute of Contemporary Development was established to unite the country’s intellectual capital and leading experts to develop policies and recommendations important to Russia’s future.

The Institute of Contemporary Development engages Russia’s and the world’s leading academics, corporate, and government leaders in open and candid dialogue on practical ways of creating a modern Russian society. The Institute initiates expert panels and conferences, conducts high-quality, independent research and represents a forum for transparent and democratic exchange of ideas and views. We are not wedded to a particular point of view; rather we have an unwavering commitment to the principle of comprehensive, open and honest dialogue about Russia’s future.

The Institute’s research and discussions are formulated into innovative and practical action recommendations for the President and Government of the Russian Federation as well as analytical and informational materials for the public.
