Students are introduced to the complexities of transition from a centrally-planned economy to a free market system and establishment of democratic institutions. They discuss the changes and their impact on Russia's economy, political institutions and the life of the Russian people. The seminar includes service projects in selected educational institutions, orphanages, business and other organizations in Nizhni Novgorod, as well as travel throughout western Russia.
