Seventh Annual Aleksanteri Conference

Revisiting Perestroika ­ Processes and Alternatives

November 29 ­ December 1, 2007

The Aleksanteri Institute, University of Helsinki, Finland


The political foundation for the reforms of perestroika, whose outcome
was to seal the fate of the USSR, was laid in Mikhail Gorbachev's
"basic theses" presented to the Central Committee of the CPSU in 1987.
Twenty years down that road which led to the demise of an entire way
of life and the re-constellation of the international system,
Helsinki's Aleksanteri Institute is hosting an intellectual forum to
revisit this era of dramatic changes. The central aim of the 7th
Annual Conference is to reassess the perestroika epoch, its causes and
effects, while considering alternative perspectives and paths not taken.

The preliminary Conference programme is published in the following address:
