    The first part of the two-piece project consists of an evaluation of peer-reviewed research on Russian security policy, conducted in Finland in 2011-2015. The second part is based on an analysis of Russia’s key security policy trends. In this part, Russia’s goals, resources and ability to carry out its goals in defence, economy, societal and state security, and the effect on Finland are evaluated. The report recommends the construction of a strategy on Russian security policy research, which would concentrate on crucial, but less studied themes. Based on the evaluation of Russia’s security developments, the report offers recommendations for Finland’s foreign and security policy. It is essential that Finnish decision makers assess Russia’s development in a comprehensive manner and are prepared for various alternatives.
  • Heusala, Anna-Liisa (2018)
    The article analyzes the evolution of Russian migration policy vis-à-vis national security thinking in a historical perspective. The idea put forward is that Russian migration policy is built on the early Soviet experiences of population control, in which ‘national security’ was an essential component of policy developments. In today’s conditions, the interconnectedness of transnational security challenges, such as large-scale migration, is an important factor that officially motivates Russia to emphasize pragmatic institutional choices. Russia has followed the global trend of securitization of legislation and administrative policies underlying the re-emergence of national security as an important policy framework. This ambitious framework is constrained by unfinished institutional changes and legacies rooted in the Soviet past. Migration continues to be an arena of policy-making where different interests override each other. Russian migration policy can best be described as an attempt to find a balance between economic incentives and security concerns, or between institutional pathologies and recycled dysfunctions and the need for modernization.

    Den första delen av det tvådelade projektet har utvärderats refererad finska forskning på den ryska säkerhetspolitiken i 2011-2015. Den andra delen är baserad på en analys av politiska trender i Rysslands säkerhet. Avsnittet beräknas Rysslands mål, medel och förmågan i militära försvaret, ekonomi, social och statlig säkerhet, och vad dessa innebär för Finlands val. I rapporten rekommenderas att förbereda en forskningsstrategi på Rysslands säkerhetspolitik med särskild inriktning på de kritiska, men föga studerade teman. Rapporten ger rekommendationer för åtgärder på grundval av den nuvarande utvecklingen i Ryssland. Det är viktigt att beslutsfattarna i Finland bedömer Rysslands utveckling på ett övergripande sätt och är förberedda för olika alternativ.
