Principal Investigator(s): Zimmerman, William, University of Michigan; Yargomskaia, Natalia, European University at St.Petersburg
Part of the series Change and Stability in Russian Foreign Policy Elite Perspectives (begun in 1999), this data collection is the product of a fourth round of interviews completed by Russian foreign policy elites in the year 2004. Underlying the series has been an effort to identify and explain those foreign policy domains in which orientation to the domestic political system has played a major predictive role. This particular survey explored a number of issues relating to foreign policy, security problems, and international affairs. Respondents were asked for their opinions on several issues such as Russia's priorities with respect to national versus international interests, military intervention in international affairs, threats facing the country, Russia's relationship with the European Union, former Soviet republics such as the Ukraine and Belarus, and the influence of Western and Asian countries on Russia as a nation. Respondents also were asked questions pertaining to foreign policy, media, national security, military aid, national expenditure, individuals' rights, NATO, democracy, and Russia's foreign policy goals. The survey concluded with a number of socio-demographic questions including gender, year and place of birth, nationality, income, education level, and political and religious affiliations.
