1. Marksberry, Brian R. Russian Foreign Policy in the South Caucasus.

Degree: MA, Political Science, 2011, Miami University

For about a decade, Russia has been a flush with money, and economic prosperity after the financial chaos of the 1990s. This boom has been driven largely by Moscow’s exports of natural gas and oil, and helped by record high energy prices. Much of this energy sources have been carried on pipelines that run through Russia’s unstable North Caucasus region. However, Western-backed pipelines in the South Caucasus pose a threat towards Russia’s newfound prosperity. In order to undermine future pipelines in the region, Moscow has sought to destabilize the region by encouraging and manipulating separatist tensions in the pivotal nation of Georgia. These tensions culminated in the brief conflict in August 2008. Three years later, relations between Tbilisi and Moscow remain high, and the West continues to see Georgia as a pivotal transit route for its pipelines, much to Moscow’s chagrin. Advisors/Committee Members: Dawisha, Karen (Committee Chair).

2. Martin, Jeremy A. RUSSIA AND THE “WEST:” A USEFUL PARADIGM OR AN IMAGINED ACTOR?.

Degree: MA, Political Science, 2007, Miami University

In much of the post-Soviet literature on Western-Russian international relations, it is argued or assumed that post-Soviet Russia is too weak to challenge the “West” and its policies and plans regarding former Soviet states. This paper will argue that the “West” is not monolithic, and examine the limitations this places on Western influence within the post-Soviet space. The paper will divide the West into two primary entities, the European Union and the United States, and compare the influence and limitations these entities have against Russian foreign policy interests in the former Soviet space. Using journalistic accounts of several highly referenced conflicts, this paper will offer a case study analysis of the causes of Russian foreign policy successes and failures during periods of opposition to either one or both of these Western entities, and discuss the implications of these causes. Advisors/Committee Members: Dawisha, Karen (Advisor).

3. Schenk, Caress Rene. A Typical Country of Immigration? The Russian Immigration Regime in Comparative Perspective.

Degree: PhD, Political Science, 2010, Miami University

This dissertation analyzes entry components of Russia’s immigration regime, which encompasses laws, policies and actual practices (in the informal and formal realms) that regulate immigration flows, entry (immigrant access to border crossing, residence, and entry into the labor market) and incorporation (ultimately citizenship). The analysis places Russia in comparative perspective drawing on the cases of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, United Arab Emirates, and the United States. The focus of the research is an assessment of policy inputs from society and economic actors that interact with the law and law-making processes to produce formal and informal procedures regulating immigrant populations. Russia’s immigration situation is dominated by informal processes, which arise out of conflict between economic need for migrant labor and xenophobia in society. My hypothesis is that in Russia the state manages conflicting demands from society and economy by creating restrictive control mechanisms that force migrants into the informal sector. Immigration restrictions, primarily the use of a quota system that limits the number of migrants, can be seen as populist because of their broad public appeal. Further, by pushing migrants into the informal sector, both as a result of the quota mechanism itself and the corruption involved in the implementation process, there is an ample pool of cheap (albeit illegal) labor that employers can draw on. The dissertation proceeds to establish whether Russia fits global patterns by assessing it in comparative context. The nine other countries of immigration are considered in order to ascertain whether Russia’s use of informality is typical throughout the world. The dissertation provides evidence that, while the situation is more extreme in Russia, the presence of xenophobia and the use of informal mechanisms to manage societal and economic demands are not uncommon in countries of immigration. Advisors/Committee Members: Dawisha, Karen (Committee Chair).
